Be More Chill, by Ned Vizzini Posted by Derek W.

BE MORE CHILL, by Ned Vizzini

AR: Yes

Interest Level: Upper Grades

BE MORE CHILL is a great book. In the beginning of the story a teenager has trouble dealing with his popularity issues and his family. He is always getting bullied by the jocks, preps, and gothic kids at his school until one day he finds a solution to his problem from one of his friends. His friend tells him about the "Squip" which is a pill that implants a tiny computer in his brain when he swallows it. It tells him what to do and say and how to act. Instantly he is friends with the jocks and the popular kids, and can have any girl he wants. Then it starts to catch up with him. he gets drunk at parties and enjoys himself until the "Squip" malfunctions and starts shutting off and speaking in different languages and he can't figure out how to fix it. When the "Squip" malfunctions he is at a party and the house of the party burns down. This book is great and it has a good ending, but I can't tell you about it, because then you won't read it!

  3. Wow--Hannah, you must be bored to be reading the library blog on Saturday!

    Hard core...hmmmm...Yes, I think some of it is hard core, but it's also very relative to today's teens.

  8. Hey, this is Ned Vizzini. I wrote this book. I hope nobody doesn't believe that it's me because believe me, I am not important enough for anyone to want to pretend to be me!

    Anyway, Derek, I really appreciate your comments. It means a lot to me that you would give a review, and your review was nice and short, which means people will actually read it!

    Also, no kidding, you posted this on my birthday.

    Hope you can drop by my blog sometime. Just Google me, it's easy enough.

    Thank you so much!

    --Ned
