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 defeats that come his way on his Humiliation Sheets… until he hears about the "squip." A pill-sized supercomputer that you swallow, the squip is a technological breakthrough guaranteed to make anybody cool. By instructing Jeremy on everything from what to wear, to how to walk and talk, to who to ditch, the squip transforms him from an unimaginable 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 Jeremy discovers that there is a dark side to having a computer inside your brain--and it can have disastrous consequences.
