The premise was very interesting and creative. The main character, Jeremy Heere, is your average high school geek. No girls like him, he only has one friend, and he writes all of the insults thrown at him in a notebook. All through high school, Jeremy has been crushing on Christine, a beautiful girl who is in his acting class. When Jeremy reaches the peak of dorkdom, his enemy Rich gives him some valuable information. He advises Jeremy to take “The Squip” a pill that makes you go from geek to chic. But Jeremy realizes there are downsides to being the coolest kid around.
While this novel is certainly entertaining and somewhat well-written, the story drags near the end, causing you to wonder if he is ever going to find a resolution. The novel has your average teen angst elements: drugs, innapropriate relationships, and bullying, but they are all put together to create one entertaining novel.
After reading this, I was shocked to find out that Ned Vizzini died just as I finished the novel. For more info on Ned Vizzini’s Death and Be More Chill, click on the links.

Summary: In 2010, the Holy Empire of Britannia began a campaign of conquest, its sights set on Japan. Operations were completed in one month due to Britannia’s deployment of new mobile humanoid armor vehicles. The once proud nation of Japan was now referred to as Area 11. Pockets of resistance appear throughtout Area 11. Posing as a student, exiled Imperial Prince Lelouch finds himself in the heart of an ongoing conflict for the island nation. Lelouch gains his Geass (the power of the king), thanks to a mysterious girl named C.C. Now endowed with absolute dominance over any person, Lelouch may finally realize his goal of bringing down Britannia from within.
I started watching it because…I enjoy watching anime that involves strategy and Code Geass was all about that.
In a yearbook, the main characters would be voted Most Likely To:
Lelouch as the Man with the Brains, Suzaku as Athlete of the Month (Season 1).
Lelouch as “Messiah” and Savior of the Weak, Suzaku as Betrayer of Japan (Season 2).
