In the interesting novel Be More Chill, we go into the life of a typical nerd who like any other wishes to be cool and known among the popular kids. He's a tall scrawny boy with really bad dandruff and who sits quietly in class every day. Everyone talks around him thinking that he doesn't hear what he or she says and just ignores him but the truth is he hears every word. Especially a girl named Jenna who talks so much crap about her best friend to her other friend Anna. Whenever he gets made fun off in any way he has a sheet of paper in which he puts a tally next to the incident. But day after day in his math class he only stares at the girl in whom he is deeply in lust with but she doesn't know. Not until one day when he hears about this super computer chip that u take as a pill and it stays in your head telling you what to wear, how to talk, and who to talk to (it has conversations with you in your head). Jeremy steals his Aunts valuable beanie babies and sells them on eBay to collect the 600 dollars he needs to be able to pay for this highly effective pill. It does a magnificent job completely transforming the nerdy Jeremy into a stud that every girl wants to get with. But yet unfortunately things don't always come out as planned as the "squip" leads Jeremy into a world of lies, drugs, sex and violence. Worse yet he never ended up with the girl of his dreams, Christine. My recommendation for this book would be that this book is just a fun read, nothing to serious. But yet it's a book were its easy to relate to were a lot of the situations that happen in the book happen in young teenage life as well. Like for example the desperation to fit in. kids will do most likely anything to be part of "the cool group" hopefully not take some sort of pill that will talk to you in your head. But other things like being pressured into talking drugs. Sneaking out of the house to go to some party and not coming back until the next day at dawn without getting caught. These days we do so much and our parents know so little.
