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.
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.
