The Haters: A Band. A Road Trip. A Gig That Maybe Doesn't Suck. (Paperback)Jesse Andrews (author)
- In stock
A wry and witty new coming-of-age story from the New York Times bestselling author of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, now an award-winning film.
A band. A road trip. A gig that maybe doesn't suck.
Corey and Wes are convinced nothing cool can come of their lame summer at jazz camp, when along comes Ash - all blonde hair and brash words - who cracks their world wide open. Finally, something they can't seem to hate. Convinced that a great musician is made on the road, the three friends flee camp and begin the epic, hilarious road trip: The Haters Summer of Hate Tour.
Amidst sneaking into seedy bars, evading their parents and the police, and spending every minute together in a makeshift tour bus, romance blossoms and bursts and hygiene takes a back seat. Wes begins to realize the limitations of hating everything: it keeps you at a convenient distance from something, or someone, you just might love.
