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 is told about the squip. A pill-sized supercomputer that you swallow, the squip 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 a supergeek to one of the most popular guys in class. Soon he has made friends and has the attention of the hottest girls in school. But his real dream, Christine, remains out of his reach. Jeremy eventually finds out that there is also a dark side to having a computer inside your brain, and it can lead to disastrous consequences. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a good story, but i could have done without all the teenage boy sex angst, which was a little more detailed than I really needed. Other than that, I enjoyed the story and the writing was good. "

    " Loved the whole book... Until the ending "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trudy Somers | 2/3/2014

    " graphic book for high school teenagers who have always wanted to be part of the "in crowd". Lots of profanity, but VERY VERY FUNNY---boys and girls alike have loved this book, couldn't keep it on my shelf! "

    " This book was pretty good. The main character,Jeremy,is in high school and has social life problems. He's considered much of a dork. He really likes this girl called Christine. Of course,Jeremy isn't Prince Charming. So in desperate need to change his life around he buys a "squip", a micro computer that gives you advice for having a perfect social life. Pretty neat huh? Not exactly. Jeremy starts realizing that the squip isn't working on the girl of his dreams. The squip also starts making Jeremy do stuff he doesn't feel so comfortable....it starts making Jeremy think...was the squip really worth it? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 11/12/2013

    " I thought that this book was a very comical and cute young adult about the problems that an average "weird" high school boy goes through. I especially loved the ending it was really cute! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justine Galvez | 8/12/2013

    " Short but entertaining. I just felt short with the conflict and ending. I wish Vizzini would write a follow up to this! "

    " Funny little read. I enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 11/22/2012

    " not catcher in the rye material but clever and interesting. a bit too sci-fi for me. a mini computer that takes control of your brain. really? "

    " I realize that I'm in the minority -- but the best thing about this book is the cover. Moderately entertaining with a twist (computer that provides instructions on how to become popular) -- I never was able to like...any...of the characters enough to care what happened to them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 7706jude olson | 6/5/2011

    " Be More Chill is a science fiction book about a boy who ingests a super computer to make him cool.Fans of science fiction books might like this book but I personally thought the main characters were super shallow. "

    " it was an amazing book you should read it if you love teenage suersidle books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 4/25/2011

    " Very fun and fast read. Addresses social acclimation that most teens experience. It even has a slight moral twist to an otherwise weak ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hayley | 2/4/2011

    " I see how other readers found this book to be offensively sexist. I saw it through the whole book, but it felt like a playful (though still dangerous)throwback to the boy-likes-girl movies from the 80's. "
