Haters (2016)

By: Jesse Andrews

A young man and his best friend decide to go to a Camp Rock-esque band camp, meet a girl, and then decide to leave to start their own band. The story follows their shenanigans trying to book gigs, find places to stay, and landing themselves in a hippie harem sort of place.

Though it was an interesting story, there was the cliché of both guys liking the same girl, and the subsequent fallout from that. Plus, there were a lot of inappropriate situations, that I’d found unexpected. I also couldn’t get into Andrews’ writing style. I enjoyed the text-like rapid conversations, but other things that shouldn’t have been elaborated on, undoubtedly were.

Don’t give this book to someone unless you think they’re old enough to watch South Park.
