Be More Chill
Jeremy, class geek, lusts after girls. But how can a dweeb like him even approach them?
With a new "pill"! The pill is actually a computer device that implants into the brain, telling step-by-step how to score with a girl. At first, the voice in Jeremy's brain is pretty funny--the reader even agrees with him: "First we need to fix your clothes, your body odor, and your work-out regime." It becomes funnier when, as a part of meeting and just being with girls, the voices advises him as he is talking. Jeremy pulls back words, restates things, and seemingly is listening to a voice in his head. How could that be?
It becomes unfunny when we remember, and plot for, the single-purpose conquest. Well,
maybe it's just me being a female and reading this.... Nevertheless, this funny, quirky, great story contains some bad language and some plot twists that could make it problematic for junior high.
Sexual comments, situations; coarse language; ages 14 up
But it's hilarious!
