Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jeremy Heere is your average high school dork. Day after day, he stares at beautiful Christine, the girl he can never have, and dryly notes the small humiliations that come his way. Until the day he learns about the squip. A pill-sized supercomputer that you swallow, the squip is guaranteed to bring you whatever you most desire in life. By instructing him on everything from what to wear, to how to talk and walk, the squip transforms Jeremy from a complete geek into a member of the social elite. Soon he is friends with his former tormentors and has the attention of the hottest girls in school. But even now Christine remains stubbornly out of his reach. Jeremy eventually finds out that there is also a dark side to having a computer inside your brain--and it can lead to disastrous consequences.
