Cliques and the quest for popularity are the focus of HATERS. Teen Paski Archuleta's move from Taos to California is anything but smooth. Johanna Parker's arch tones carry listeners through Paski's encounters with an obscenely wealthy group of girls known as the " Haters" and her crush on motorcycle bad boy Chris Cabrera. Paski's droll wit, her father's " puppy dog" sweetness, and Chris's deep voice make this production enjoyable, despite the story's plot problems. Mixed messages about materialism and morality, as well as a descriptive sexual passage, target an older teen audience. They'll also enjoy the parade of fashion and privilege among the financially elite. C.A. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
