9780060747817: Be More Chill CD

This is one boy's exploration of what it takes to be "cool", how to get a girl and what (not) to do when you've got one. What do you do if you're not cool? If girls are just an impossible (wet) dream? Simple. Take a pill containing a supercomputer that travels to your brain and tells you how to be cool - all the time! In the voice of your choice! Then, it's goodbye porn and geekdom, and hello hot chicks, parties and a whole new perspective on life. Meet Jeremy, the guy with a heart, who exchanges the xxxx in his hand for a squip in his head.

In a novel that could be described as a kinder, gentler version of M.T. Anderson's Feed, young author Ned Vizzini draws on the very recent recollections of his years at Stuyvesant High School to create a witty commentary on the annoying realities of teen social life.

Jeremy Heere is convinced that people are born Cool: "See, because being Cool is obviously the most important thing on earth…It's more important than getting a job, or having a girlfriend, or political power, or money, because all those things are predicated by Coolness." And he hasn't got it. Every day he yearns hopelessly for beautiful Christine. Then, one day he gets a squip--a tiny quantum supercomputer that looks like a little gray capsule and when swallowed becomes a voice in his head instructing him in the ways of Cool. Soon, every gril he admires is his--including Christine. But when the squip turns malevolent in its merciless pursuit of the goal, Jeremy begins to realize that Cool is not as cool as he thought it was. (ages 14 up) --Patty Campbell
