Jeremy Heere is your average high school dork. Day after day, he stares at beautiful Christine, the girl he can never have, and dryly notes the small humiliations that come his way. . . until the day he finds out about the "squip." This pill-sized supercomputer, when swallowed, is guaranteed to bring you whatever you most desire in life. By instructing him on everything from what to wear to how to talk and walk, the squip transforms Jeremy from Supergeek into one of the most popular guys in class. Soon he is friends with his former tormentors and has the attention of the hottest girls in school. But Jeremy eventually discovers that there is also a dark side to having a computer inside your brain-and it can have disastrous consequences. Searingly witty and surprisingly poignant-this novel heralds the arrival of a hot new talent in YA fiction.

This book had a different storyline than the usual books i read. it was good though because i don't like to read books with the same generic storyline as others. it was about a nerd who wanted to be cool. and it got him everything he wanted and somethings he didn't want. and there was a moral behind this book for sure. but who knows, maybe something like this could happen in the future. maybe a nerd decides he's tired of not being cool and invents some awesome pill that connects with the brain.

Be More Chill is about Jeremy Heere, a boy who is anything but cool. He has a crush on Christine and yearns for her, but how could an uncool guy like him get her? This is where the squip comes in. A squip is an illegal pill that will make him cool. Not only can he get Christine now, but any girl he ever wanted. All Jeremy has to do is swallow it, and the squip will talk to him the voice of Keanu Reeves.

While I didnt enjoy this book near as much as Its Kind of a Funny Story, I still liked it. Be More Chill definitely had its funny parts. One of my favorites included the death of Eminem. I also liked Jeremys best friend, Michael who is a big Weezer fan and also has a thing for Asian girls (like Rivers Cuomo). The ending was clever, even if I felt it was a little forced. My main dislike was that it needed more depth. It never really answers just how important popularity is.

this book is defferent, something i have never read about before. This book made me laugh a lot. I loved the main character and how he thinks that this little pill, A.K.A squib, can solve all of his problems. In the end though, he figures that the pill can't solve his problems and has to get the person he has fallen in love to take him back. The only thing i don't like about this book is that you don't find out what happens with him, but i guess that was the point, to make us guess what happens to him. This is a really good book that teens should definitly read.

this book was great, i looved the plot, it was new and fresh, something i have never heard before. i read this book in one day because even when i was tired i still found myself turning away at the pages. it was something new that would stretch the imagination of any teen, even if you don't usually read fantasy type books(like me), i am sur you would like this book anyway. i really recommend this book for teenagers.

What if you could instantly become cool with the help of a trusty little pill that imbeds itself itself into your brain and tells you what's cool? No need to worry about which outfit is perfect, never again miss out on the coolest new music video, the pill will handle it all for you. The problem is that being cool and doing the right thing isn't the same and maybe a pill won't be able to subdue your real personality . I think this was a pretty good book, I loved the other books by Ned Vizzini.
