Book Review #325
Be More Chill by Ned Vizzini
Rating: zero stars (out of four)

It still baffles me why an author feels the need to fill their books with vulgarity and trash.  I had come to expect a lot from Ned Vizzini, from reading one of his earlier books, "teen angst...nah", which was a remarkably clever book that held my attention and made me laugh, all without any questionable content.  I was very surprised to start reading this book and find that it was almost the complete opposite.  Swearing, sexual content, drugs, disrespect, and other crude obscenities.  I read as much as I could muster and then had to put this book down.  I would not recommend this book, all the adult content and how the characters are portrayed in such obnoxious stereotypes completely ruin the book.
