Waiting on Wednesday: Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick - Joe Schreiber


Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine and is a post detailing an upcoming book you can't wait to read.

My choice for this week is Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber.


Publication date: October 25th 2011

Summary (from Goodreads): Ferris Bueller meets La Femme Nikita in this funny, action-packed young adult novel.

It’s prom night—and Perry just wants to stick to his own plan and finally play a muchanticipated
gig with his band in the Big Apple. But when his mother makes him take Gobija Zaksauskas—their quiet, geeky Lithuanian exchange student—to the prom, he never expects that his ordinary high school guy life will soon turn on its head. Perry finds that Gobi is on a mission, and Perry has no other choice but to go along for a reckless ride through Manhattan’s concrete grid with a trained assassin in Dad’s red Jag.

Infused with capers, car chases, heists, hits, henchmen, and even a bear fight, this story mixes romance, comedy, and tragedy in a true teen coming-of-age adventure—and it’s not over until it’s “au revoir.”

  2. I was totally ready to just skip over this book based on the title.. but then I started reading the description and it sounds like so much fun. AND I've only just noticed that the product description starts with 'Ferris Bueller meets La Femme Nikita' Bahaha! One to look out for.
