New York Times best-selling author Joe Schreiber pens a funny, action-packed novel that is equal parts Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and La Femme Nikita. It’s prom night, and Perry is looking forward to playing a gig with his band in New York City. But when his mother makes him take their quiet and geeky Lithuanian exchange student to the dance, he finds himself on a reckless ride through Manhattan—in his dad’s red Jaguar—with a trained assassin.

A fairly simple , yet highly entertaining plot. THis novel brings back the 'waking up in a new world everyday' aspect of high school, in a pleasant way.
Also, soon to me a major motion picture.
I have not read the print version but it was a good fit for a car full of older teens and parents. There are a few things that were embarrassing for the teens (discussions of virginity, description of kissing) but it made it all the more humorous.
Every chapter is headed by a college application question from a different school. For a family in the throws of it, it was hilarious!!
Sometimes the lines said with an accent made them even funnier!
Gobia, the "Chick" in question, is an excellent character and I could easily see this book as a feature film. Good action and just enough anger is built up against the brain-dead teenaged male lead to make it interesting. As Gobia did a few times, you want to smack the somewhat forgettable male lead, whose name I have forgotten, but he comes around in the end...the very end.
author of books for teens and children
A very fast-paced book that unfolds like a fun adventure movie. I thought it was great and I bet teenage boys would especially like this book.
