Picked this up at the Book Expo. I think my enjoyment may have been hampered by not being a 15 year old boy. Was still decent fun, and definitely zany. ( )

When I first heard the name, I thought it was going to be one of those terrible teen fictions *cough,cough* Twilight *cough,cough*. But for some reason I picked it up from my local library anyway. But my thoughts couldn't have been more wrong! This book was full of action, chase scenes, mobsters, the list goes on and on! This would be an AMAZING movie, if produced correctly.

I won't tell too much about the story but it's about a foreign exchange student named Gobi, or Gobija Zakusaus(I think that's how you spell it) coming to live with senior named Perry. A week before she has to fly home is prom, and SHE asks Perry to go with her. Prom night comes and it turns out she's a paid assassin(at least that's what you're supposed to think *wink,wink*)

At the beginning of each chapter is a question or quote from a famous collage, which made me ponder a bit. Just amazing. The only reason I didn't give it a full five stars is because of the terrible name. I felt embarrassed to read it at school it's that bad. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0547577389, Hardcover)

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.”

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:34:15 -0400)

Perry's parents insist that he take Gobi, their quiet, Lithuanian exchange student, to senior prom but after an incident at the dance he learns that Gobi is actually a trained assassin who needs him as a henchman, behind the wheel of his father's precious Jaguar, on a mission in Manhattan.… (more)
