Andrews, Jesse. The Haters.

Andrews, Jesse.  The Haters.  Harry Abrams  2016      324p  $18.95  ISBN 978-1-4197-2078-9        hs  Realistic fiction  VG-BN   

Inspired by the years Andrews spent playing bass in a band himself, The Haters is a fast-paced road-trip adventure led by a trio of jazz-camp escapees who, come to form a successful band against all expectations. Fans of Andrews’ debut novel, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, will enjoy his second stand-alone volume, which tackles important but relevant themes such as music, love, friendship, and freedom. 

Andrews’ unique voice stands out: he is witty yet whimsical. Publishers Weekly describes the novel as “a love letter to music and following one’s dreams”, and says “it’s just right."   

Summary: When a trio of campers escapes from a music camp, they are surprised to find that they can form a successful band.
