Wat ik daarmee bedoel is dat ik gewend ben om Michael en Christine als POC te zien door hun acteurs, wat helemaal niet zo med in het boek. After he wrote an essay that got published by the New York Times Magazine, several of his essays about his young vizzii life ended up being combined into his first book, Teen Angst?
Nou, iets wat een jongen moet hebben om cool te zijn. Yes, I do believe that that’s it. The issue of being a bystander returns here. He’s also a chilo for a different reason. Why is Jeremy so mean to Michael? They’re such assholes in the book. The squip teaches him how to get girls, do his homework, and even helps him remember his shakespear lines.

Het boek heeft veel meer personages, wat logisch is, aangezien je niet maar een beperkt aantal acteurs hebt. Jeremy Heere is a high end outcast with a crush on a beautiful girl, Christine, but of course he can never get the nerve to speak to her. Want nu kan ik zeggen dat ik het gelezen heb, haha. Jeremy Heere is your average high school dork. This book just wasn’t for me. Some girls are sluts, some girls talk behind other people’s backs, some girls are sexual objects to be filmed and posted online.
Ned is actually a good friend of mine – we briefly dated when I was a sophomore in college and we’ve remained friends the book is dedicated in-part to me, in fact – but I swear to God, I’d love Be More Chill even if Cjill pulled it off a mkre. While the characters were not always like-able, or even minimally moral, they rang true for the authentic teenage voice.
You just swallow this pill and then you like get this really hip computer chip embedded in your brain that tells you how to act and what to say and argues with you until you are da bomb.
And I’ll get what I want sexual favors.

There are also other terrible things written: The concept of a geek swallowing a supercomputer to become Cool is an over-the-top twist to the classic “dweeb becomes cool” story that fodders so many high school rom-coms.
Another issue this book runs into is that though infidelity is dismissed when males commit it, girls are continuously and pervasively labeled “sluts” and “whores” and have every insult in the book thrown at them by both girls and boys. Vizzini’s characters and situations are said be based upon his time spent at Stuyvesant.
They are all incredibly misogynistic, as pointed out by many other reviewers. Every character in this book “slutshames” or shames girls for being sexually active or having multiple partners — this is vuzzini serious matter. Het eerste wat mij opviel waren de personages.
Jeremy also slowly gains the attention of Christine, as he advances through the social ranks of Middle Borough High School.

Funny new style book Reader reviewed by bria this book is defferent, something i have never read about before. They’ll totally fall for it.
Yeah, it’ll make you act, look, seem, sound, make, break, buy, sell, find, invent, STINK of coolness. I think I kind of enjoyed this book because I love the musical.
The premise of this book is essentially that a high-school aged boy, Jeremy, who longs after a particular girl and has low self-esteem about his persona, comes across a small pill-sized supercomputer bbe a “squip” that can act as a instructional guide on how to behave and what to do to accomplish one’s goals. The observations of what the cool kids do, what the outsiders have to do to get in and stay in is very perceptive and if it weren’t for the cool pill, this will probably be an ordinary ‘coming of age’ teen angst story.
