Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick

Title: Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick
Author: Joe Schreiber
Pages: 190
Language: PG 13
Maturity: PG 13
Level: High School
Recommendation: Good Read

Summary: Ferris Bueller meets La Femme Nikita in this funny, action-packed young adult novel.It’s prom night—and Perry just wants to stick to his own plan and finally play a muchanticipated gig with his band in the Big Apple. But when his mother makes him take Gobija Zaksauskas—their quiet, geeky Lithuanian exchange student—to the prom, he never expects that his ordinary high school guy life will soon turn on its head. Perry finds that Gobi is on a mission, and Perry has no other choice but to go along for a reckless ride through Manhattan’s concrete grid with a trained assassin in Dad’s red Jag.Infused with capers, car chases, heists, hits, henchmen, and even a bear fight, this story mixes romance, comedy, and tragedy in a true teen coming-of-age adventure—and it’s not over until it’s “au revoir.”

Review: I seriously thought this was going to be a "chick flick", based on the picture on the cover. I soon realized though, that this was a high intensity, action packed thriller that boys would enjoy! A young man's world is turned upside down as he is involved with an assassin who is not who he thinks!!! The language was a little more than I care for, but for guys who love action, this is a great read.
