I really enjoyed this book but it contains a lot of swearing ( really does Andrews have to use every swear word known to man on every page), drug use and sex so is for older readers. Its about a guy called Wes and his mate who go to a jazz camp and discover that they aren't very good at the type of music the camp wants them to play. They meet super rich girl Ash who has a car and convinces them to go on a road trip as just the three of them as an unnamed band - basically they will drive until they find somewhere to play. The book then details the antics of the three as travel through the Southern states of the United States.
This is written by the same author as Me, Earl and the dying girl and is quite readable except for the part where Wes gets stoned and all his alter egos are talking to each other - I found that excruciating to read and could have been shortened by two pages as we, the readers had got the point right at the very start of these passages. I also found the ending a bit "Meh" but I won't spoil it here. A coming of age book for older readers. ( )

YA -- my guilty pleasure. I was ultimately in search of a book for my 14 year-old musically inclined son, but this isn't it. In many ways, I wish it were! It is downright hilarious at times and captures the teen angst (mostly self-directed) perfectly. Wes Doolittle is the narrator (bass guitar) and he and his best friend Corey (drums) are signed up for Bill Garabedian's Jazz Giants of Tomorrow Intensive Summer Workshops. His detached, but insecurity-veiled-as-judgmental tone is spot on as he evaluates the other campers (mostly dudes) and the instructors (looked like they were uncomfortable around kids). His comparisons and analogies had me laughing out loud at some points. Wes and Corey leave jazz camp and its phoniness (echoes of Catcher in the Rye with a lot more F-bombs) in short order, mostly because of a girl, Ash Ramos, who is singled out (legitimately) for playing her guitar in the wrong key. But it's worth a protest so the 3 of them go on the lam, leaving their phones behind so they can't be traced and embark on a road-trip, the quintessential coming-of-age undertaking. Ash is loaded (daughter of Brazilian billionaire and former runway model) and she bankrolls the trip. Together they are determined to be a band and get some gigs -- (the first at a Chinese buffet, another in a good Samaritan's back-yard) but needless to say their experimental edgy lyrics and sound don't have mass appeal. Also, their attempts to choose a band name are hilarious and smart as they over-analyze what exactly a band with the name Air Horse (among dozens of suggestions) would look like, play like and age to. Ultimately they decide on The Haters because they hate on everything in their quest for coolness. They are headed further south and the stakes and the potential gigs and outside influences and secondary characters intensify. Meanwhile, both boys have a crush on Ash and she has a Yoko Ono function in the band from time to time. The characters get to know one another better (Ash was pressured to be a tennis star until she bailed for music, Wes is adopted, but benignly neglected, Corey is poor and helicopter-parented) Like "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl," the story itself is solid and has a lot of heart as this passage shows: "It felt like the part of waking up from a dream when you're pretending you don't know yet that it was a dream. Even though you do. Like you know you're really not flying, but you're pretending you don't know just to have a few more minutes of it. And you're pretending the world around you is that same beautiful insane shifting dream place you would never get tired or bored of, and you still have that stupid perfect dream understanding of yourself and everyone and everything. You have that feeling of you'll never feel confused or disappointed again." (314) This refers to their road trip, and booking the ultimate gig, and on a larger scale could refer to the turbulent teen years, maybe in retrospect. But overall, the language, raunchiness and crudeness make the book a little hard to stomach sometimes. There is casual drug use and alcohol abuse and also a loss of virginity, but it's not the implied tender experience like John Green captures in the Fault in Our Stars. Even though I know parts of this would make him laugh, it weirds me out to think of my son reading it, so on hold for awhile longer. ( )

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is one of the best YA novels I've ever read. It's hilarious and irreverent in the extreme, and any book that can make me laugh hysterically and then move me to tears is doing something very right.

Sadly, Andrews' follow-up book is quite different. He's clearly attempting to capture the magic of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, but it's not working. The Haters is a mess. And worse, it's an unfunny mess. Andrews is simply trying too hard.

That being said, I'm still going to read Andrews' next book. And everyone should read Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. ( )

A humorous diversion built around a mostly enjoyable if unlikely road trip. I was left with the feeling that Andrews is maybe skewing a little too much into John Green territory, a la [b:Paper Towns|6442769|Paper Towns|John Green|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1349013610s/6442769.jpg|3364505] and [b:An Abundance of Katherines|49750|An Abundance of Katherines|John Green|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1360206426s/49750.jpg|48658].

Wes and Corey run away from jazz band camp to be in a band with fellow camper Ash Ramos, now expelled. They head south looking for places to play and trying not to be caught and sent home. ( )
