Summary: 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.
Review: Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick was such a refreshing read. It's so different from what I usually read and it was a downright fun.
Not only is this a fun read but it's a breeze to read with short chapters that start with college essay questions. It gives you more insight to what's going to happen in the chapter and gives the story a different kind of twist.
Perry and Gobi make an interesting little team during their midnight adventure in New York. It's fast-paced with a mean dose of action. I didn't feel like I got to know Perry or Gobi very well but they were worth reading about. To top it all off the ending of this one crept up on me and I never saw it coming.
If you're into crazy chase scenes with guns blaring then you should definitely pick this up. Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is a read that I won't be forgetting anytime soon.
