When Perry’s mom forces him to take Gobi, their Lithuanian foreign exchange student, to the Prom, his biggest concern is that he will miss his band’s gig in New York City. He tries to get out of it, but his overbearing father insists that Perry skip the gig and go to the prom. The evening begins as most prom nights do with tuxedos, dresses, corsages and punch. However, it soon becomes clear that Gobi has been hiding a lot during the nine months that she’s been living with Perry’s family. Underneath the drab clothes and bad haircut lies a smoking hot assassin, and she has chosen Perry as her accomplice for the night whether he likes it or not. What follows is a whirlwind night of adventure complete with car chases, violent thugs, and a helicopter rescue. By the end of the night, Perry learns who Gobi really is and must also come to terms with who he really wants to be.

Though completely unrealistic, Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is a thrilling story that will keep even reluctant readers turning the pages. The chapters are short and action-packed, moving the plot along quickly. Perry is a likable main character, and his relationship with his pushy, arrogant father is one that teens will be able to relate to. Though the novel has a humorous tone, there is a lot of violence (fist fights, guns, knives, dog fights, torture, etc.) that may bother more sensitive readers. Overall, this is a fast, enjoyable read that will appeal to teens who want a suspenseful, plot-driven novel and don’t mind a lot of bloodshed.
