From Jesse Andrews, author of the New York Times bestselling Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and screenwriter of the Sundance award–winning motion picture of the same name, comes a groundbreaking young adult novel about music, love, friendship, and freedom as three young musicians follow a quest to escape the law long enough to play the amazing show they hope (but also doubt) they have in them.

Inspired by the years he spent playing bass in a band himself, The Haters is Jesse Andrews’s road trip adventure about a trio of jazz-camp escapees who, against every realistic expectation, become a band.

Quotes & Awards

    USA Today

  • “An uproariously funny addition to the teen-road-trip canon…which celebrates friendship and adventure.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “[A] gonzo road trip with offbeat humor, philosophical musings, and musical references and debate…As a love letter to music and following one’s dreams, it’s just right.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Has all the requisite coming-of-age moments, with virginities and illustions lost and friendships, courage, and self-awareness found.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Truly hilarious….a teen road trip packed with music and drama.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Michael Crouch…captures Wes’ analytical and responsible nature, capably handling every nuance of the smart, funny writing…Crouch creates unique voices for the secondary characters as well, and his voice for Corey is particularly effective, revealing character and helping illuminate his relationship with Wes. This exploration of identity and friendship will make listeners groan with recognition and laugh out loud.”
