Be More Chill

By Ned Vizzini

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?
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 **** in his hand for a squip in his head.

'Very funny, well observed and well written. Very clever story, beautiful executed - definitly one to take notice of, and one of the cleverest plots I've come across in a long time.' MELVIN BURGESS -

'Hip, funky, funny and immensely entertaining - Vizzini's debut is a novel of modern teen times that will resonate with all who choose to indulge in it's hilarious excess.' JOHN MCLAY -

'Comic and intelligent … he shows a real talent for self-deprecating humour.' Publishers Weekly -

'Ned Vizzini is a young genius. And if he were old, he would be an old genius. It doesn't matter. This kid can write!' Jonathan Ames, author of What's Not to Love and The Extra Man -

'Be More Chill is a sharp social commentary disguised as a high school sex (or no sex, in our hero's case) comedy. I was thoroughly entertained by Vizzini's clever take on the insanity (and inanity) of contemporary teendom.' Megan McCafferty, author of Sloppy Firsts and Second Helpings -

'His wonderfully sardonic voice … suggests a wisdom beyond his years.' School Library Journal. -
