1. Au Revoir Crazy European Chick - Review

Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick
By Joe Schrieber

If you are looking for different, look no further than Au Revoir Crazy European Chick. It is a book like no other. Think La Femme Nikita meets Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist.

Start with a boy, Perry, who is working on his college applications, and is also in a band. His mom wants him to take Gobi, the geeky foreign exchange student living in his house, to the prom on the same night as his band has their first real paid gig. He thinks his life can't get any worse than this. Cue the maniacal background laughter.

Oh, the evening gets so much worse. It turns out Gobi is really an assassin, and she strong-arms Perry to be her chauffeur and aide - in his father's jaguar, in their prom clothes. Yes, this is a night in Manhattan Perry will remember for a long, long time - if he survives the night that is.

This book was so much fun. It's brimming with action sequences, mobsters, car chases, bear fights, blood, family drama, and a standoff with an overpowering parent. And the chapter openers - college application questions - are a stroke of genius.
