Jeremy Heere is convinced that people are born Cool: "See, because being Cool is obviously the most important thing on earth It's more important than getting a job, or having a girlfriend, or political power, or money, because all those things are predicated by Coolness." And he hasn't got it. Every day he yearns hopelessly for beautiful Christine. Then, one day he gets a squip--a tiny quantum supercomputer that looks like a little gray capsule and when swallowed becomes a voice in his head instructing him in the ways of Cool. Soon, every gril he admires is his--including Christine. But when the squip turns malevolent in its merciless pursuit of the goal, Jeremy begins to realize that Cool is not as cool as he thought it was.

The book was labeled "young adult," but it is vulgar, has a lot to do with how to be "Cool" which involves flirting and -of course- sex. Read morePublished 24 months ago by noble strength
