Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber

Genre: YA/Action/Adventure
Release: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children; 1 edition (October 25, 2011)
Buy the Book: Amazon

Perry Stormaire is a normal high school senior– he is busy applying to college and rehearsing with his band –until he agrees to go to the prom with the Lithuanian exchange student who is staying with his family. It turns out that Gobi Zaksauskas is not the mousy teenager that she seems but rather an attractive, confident trained assassin. Instead of going to the prom, Perry finds himself on a wild ride through the streets of New York City as Gobi commandeers the Jaguar his father lent him for the prom in order to take out her targets. Perry learns a lot about himself – and ends up with some amazing material for his college application essays.

I finally got the chance to read it!!! I love it, It was fast-paced and quick. Perry's mom made a friend out of a foreign exchange student her family sponsored, she had the same aspirations for Perry and so they decided to sponsor one, it didn't turn out as good as they want it to be.

Gobi was from Lithuanian and for the past nine months, staying under their roof, she was known to be the shy girl, unattractive and is suffering from fainting spells. During prom night Perry was forced by his parent's to take Gobi. He does not want to because it was the same day his Inchworm band finally got a good gig to play at a local bar. But with a very controlling and infuriating father he begrudgingly complied.

Right after leaving prom due to some unpleasant scenes Perry finally saw Gobi, really saw her. It was hard not too, since she was actually hot and on a killing spree and she managed to make him her accomplice. There were a few graphic scenes fitting but might not be appropriate for children (I won't let my son read this book just yet). The blurb also just said Gobi is a trained assassin but it did not explain the why and the how, I like what I discovered. What she went through was heart breaking and tragic and it is based on what is happening somewhere in the real world.

Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is entertaining from start to finish. highly recommended to all fans of YA thriller, mystery and action.
