Be More Chill
Jeremy Heere was your typical nerd. Bullied and unable to get the girls of his dreams, he is convinced taking a pill would help. This was no ordinary pill, however, it was a squib, designed to implant a tiny computer in your brain to give you instruction on how to be “cool”.
This book has a cute premise but I had a lot of issues with the way the women were portrayed throughout. It objectified the girls as prizes to be won then discarded once the conquest was made. I read this because I was going to see the new Broadway music of the same name and was hoping the music was a little more sensitive to the image of the women. The objectification of the women in the book really ruined the book for me.
