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.

A teen road-trip movie waiting to happen. * Sydney Morning Herald *
Truly hilarious... A teen road trip packed with music and drama. * Kirkus *
An uproariously funny addition to the teen-road-trip canon... Readers will be sucked into this story, a raunchy bromance in the vein of Superbad, which celebrates friendship and adventure... Effortlessly readable, deeply enjoyable * Booklist, starred review *
This was probably the funniest book I've ever read... Everyone should read this book. * Guardian on Me and Earl and the Dying Girl *
Dead funny... Shows just how much fun reading and writing can be. * The Australian on Me and Earl and the Dying Girl *
Funny, warm, enjoyably scatterbrained. * Observer on Me and Earl and the Dying Girl *
This surprising gem is at once moving and hilarious... Greg and his misadventures will have you laughing out loud. * Book Trust on Me and Earl and the Dying Girl *

An exhilarating and emotional look at the tests and trials of teenage life. * Evening Standard on Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (film) *
