Publisher's Summary

Dear Best Friend,

I can already tell that I will hate everyone but you.

Sincerely,

Ava Helmer

(That brunette who won't leave you alone)

We're still in the same room, you weirdo.

Stop crying.

G

So begins a series of texts and emails sent between two best friends, Ava and Gen, as they head off to their first semesters of college on opposite sides of the country. From first loves to weird roommates, heartbreak, self-discovery, coming out, and mental health, the two best friends will document every moment to each other. But as each changes and grows into her new life, will their friendship be able to survive the distance?

I Hate Everyone But You, the debut novel by two emerging major talents in YA, Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn, is a story about new beginnings, love and heartbreak, and, ultimately, the power of friendship.

Listen to This Book Y'all

I absolutely loved the book and the greatest cherry on top was being able to hear it read by Allison and Gaby. I either saw an interview or podcast where they talked about how time consuming recording the audio for the book was, but my goodness was it worth it! I already appreciated the complexity of the characters as I read it on my own the first time but being able to hear them, as the authors, give voice to the characters showed just how clever, sarcastic, and funny they (Allison/Ava, Gabby/Gen) truly are. It touches on subjects like mental illness and sexuality in a way that I haven't seen other books do before so just listen to this book y'all.

Best friend sweetness

I was nervous that because it is told as a series of texts that the audio version wouldn't translate as well, but looking at reviews I gave it a shot and I'm glad I did. I think hearing it gave a lot of feeling and nuance I wonder if I would have missed or interpreted differently without their inflection. There was so so much I loved about this book, the way many kinds of love/relationships were shown, the descriptions of each girl exploring what they want and need from the people in their lives as they grow up, the deep beautiful friendship that they both value, the fact they both make such terrible mistakes that of course an 18 year old would make, and yet it is so throughly sweet and funny through the whole thing. Both narrators have their own voice, so I never had to wonder even for a moment who was talking.

More of this

Loved the format and communication between these characters. I gifted the paperback to my best friend (from high school through college to present) and it has taken us both back to our own experience going away to seperate universities. Looking forward to the next project from these amazing women. Buy this book!!

I love this book!

I love this book, but I loved reading it more than having Allison and Gaby read it to me. The print format should not be skipped. Go get yourself a copy.

I loved this book.

I have had this book for just over a week and listened to it twice. I love Gaby and Allison and their storytelling. I can't wait to read, see, and hear more from both authors.

An enlightening novel with a refreshing attitude.

Written by, shockingly, first time writers, this book either ignores every college girl cliche, or flips them in a way that makes something you've heard before feel authentic and real. I haven't seen the YouTube show the authors hit big on before writing this, but if their charismatic and hilarious reading is any indication, it probably has the same charm and wit as this book. A book with no narration might sound odd, or like it might be a limit on how effective the storytelling can be, but that's not the case, at least not with this book. Dunn and Raskin not only never fail to miss a beat in terms of character or emotion, but it's obvious that keeping things as coherent as they were through only email and texting was the most challenging method to tell this story. Dunn and Raskin are more than up to the challenge, however, and here's to hoping they write a follow up real soon.

Holy shit

Do you have a shred of doubt about buying this audiobook? Please abandon that doubt. The performance is intense and the book sweet and bitter and bittersweet and emotionally vulnerable in ways I wish I had more of.

Nice drive into Gen's & Ava's Obstacles

Must Listen over & over again to witty, narration of YA novel. Raskin's and Dunn's vision of Ava Helmer and Genevieve Goldman were beautifully rendered from description of emojis to the emotion of miscommunicating and distancing within friendship.

Sometimes I had to pull curbside in order to gather my thoughts during certain chapters. As I listen to eerily similar narrations at times, I found myself immersed into topics such as mental health & coming out as queer while dealing with the headache of young adulthood. Other times, I laughed so hard that I was crying and couldn't see the road. I didn't get into an accident ...yet.

I found myself bookmarking a lot of quirky quotes that hopefully won't be use verbatim IRL because that's nearly impossible to imitate their bond and connection. The authors' friendship really showed within dialogue of two main characters.
And might I add that Allison's vocal version of a man called Jake is spot on strangely and humbly realistic.

It Grew On Me

I really didn't like this book at first but once I got used to it, it really started to pull me in. It jumped from two stars to five. Good job, girls.

Brilliant, fun, relatable

Would you listen to I Hate Everyone But You again? Why?

Will listen again and again! Fun, relatable comedy that reminds me of the woahs of my early 20s.

What was one of the most memorable moments of I Hate Everyone But You?

The ending is sweet and exactly what you want. So many books feel the only way to make a point is to leave the reader unsatisfied. I love how Allison and Gaby were able to discuss hard and complicated topics, but not leave me feeling sad.
