Review: The Haters

The Haters 
by Jesse Andrews 

Publisher: Abrams Books
Publication Date: April 5th, 2016

In THE HATERS, Wes, Corey, and Ash are fugitives from band camp and the next big thing (according to no one). Once realizing jazz camp is a total bore, they ditch and hit the road, determined to make it big in their self-named “Haters Summer of Hate Tour”. Follow Wes as he tries to get with Ash (or anyone), Ash as she tries to keep her mysterious rich girl reputation, and Corey as he tries to figure out what the heck is going on. With songs such as "Trees are Eating My Dad Right Now Pt. 1" and a never-ending argument about the name of the band, how long can their tour last before they are caught by the cops and sent home? Andrews offers a fresh take on YA literature in a novel riddled with different writing formats including Wikipedia articles, conversations in script, and a stream of consciousness from the (often immature) perspective of Wes. This was honestly one of the funniest books I've read in a long time and I would highly recommend it!
