It's Kill Bill meets Collateral in an all-action book for teens. "You shot him. You totally just shot that guy back there. I think I'm gonna throw up." One ordinary guy. One female assassin. One crazy adventure...Prom night. Perry just wants to gig with his band in the Big Apple, but his mother wants him to take his quiet, geeky Lithuanian exchange student, Gobi, to the dance instead. The night ahead looks pretty dull...right up to the point where the shooting, car chases, capturing, torturing, and helicopter rescuing kicks in. Perry soon finds out that Gobi is actually an undercover agent on a mission, and she's taking him along for the ride through Manhattan's concrete jungle in his Dad's red Jag. Breathless, high-octane action, black comedy and a shot of romance. This book for young adults is a handful for any teenage reader. "Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is the hilarious YA buzzbomb I've been waiting for all year. Has style and wit to burn. I read the whole thing in one sitting. Buildings explode, scores are settled, and the dialogue is explosively funny. Pretty much every page does it to the hilt. Boom" (Sean Beaudoin, author of You Killed Wesley Payne).
