Teen Review: “Be More Chill” by Ned Vizzini

Jeremy Heere is your average high school dork. He spends his time staring at a girl he can never have and documenting his day to day mortifications, until he gets a ‘squip’. A supercomputer in pill form, a squip communicates directly with your brain to teach you how to be cool. By instructing Jeremy on what to wear, how to talk, who to talk to, and who to ignore, it transforms him from a complete geek to one of the coolest kids in school. Jeremy begins to get all the attention he had hoped for. Soon, he is friends with his former tormentors and even has the attention from the hottest girls in school. But Jeremy soon learns that there is a dark side to giving up control to your life. Be More Chill is really funny and clever. It’s hard to put down and surprisingly relatable.
