Editorial Reviews

Review

"What follows are captures, tortures, machine guns, a helicopter rescue, and a kiss that is, like this addictive first novel for teens, a 'long, intoxicating dive through a sea of Red Bull.'"—Booklist, starred review

 

"Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is a high-octane, high-caliber joyride centered on one very loud night in New York City, a sort of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Hit List. As Perry deals with flying bullets, exploding glass, and college admissions, your assignment is much simpler (and safer): Read this book!" —Michael Northrop, author of Trapped

 

"Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is the hilarious YA buzzbomb I've been waiting for all year. Has style and wit to burn. I read the whole thing in one sitting. Buildings explode, scores are settled, and the dialog is explosively funny. Pretty much every page does it to the hilt. Boom." —Sean Beaudoin, author of You Killed Wesley Payne

 

"Fast paced, smart, exciting . . . it's like your favorite summer action thriller and John Hughes movie rolled into one." —Josh Schwartz, executive producer of Gossip Girl and The O.C.

 

"Plain and simple, it’s a blast. A couple of them, actually."—Publishers Weekly, starred review "Perfect for action adventure junkies who will enjoy the car chases, thugs, graphic killing scenes, explosions, and a random bear fight, Schreiber’s debut novel also contains enough humor, sexual tension, distinctive language, and character development to make this more than just a quick thrill read."—Horn Book

"This not-so-subtle irony combined with Schreiber's incisive wit and clever insights about high school and its relation to the larger world make this a slick, stylish read with serious implications that will give readers plenty to contemplate."--Bulletin

Looking for an action-packed, explosion filled, super secret spy YA book? Look no further.

Perry is thrown into a crazy world full of dodging bullets and taking punches all on prom night. A night that he wanted to spend jamming out with his band but was forced to take his dorky European exchange student to prom instead. Only she turns out to be much more than an exchange student.

If you want something high-intensity, this is the book to go to. While Perry and Gobi aren't very fleshed out, I think the book is more plot driven than anything else. Gobi is trying to kill people and that's what's really driving the book. And also, maybe Perry and Gobi aren't very fleshed out so that the reader can easily step into the shoes of Perry (a la Bella in Twilight). Minus the whole romance thing, because there is zilch in this book.

Was this my favorite read of the year? No. But it's cute and if you want something short and sweet, this is it.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Perry is a senior and his parents decide to host an exchage student from Lituania. Gobi is very quiet until prom night. When Perry takes her to prom he discovers her true assassin identity. This novel does not live up to the blurb, "Ferris Bueller Meet La Femme Nikita" on the back of the book. Halfway through I was willing to give the story a soft three, but changed my mind when the author was not so much as inspired by director Michael Mann's Collateral damage but basically went ahead and did a very poor copy of it. This did not live up to all the great reviews at all. I highly suggest reading the excerpt provided by amazon before you decide to buy this one. If you still want to read it see if you can check it out from your library. Or better yet just watch Collateral.

What a "hit"...in every sense of the word.

Perry Stormaire is definitley that guy that all of us knows. Not hot but definitley cute. Not a geek but definitley smart. Not a "bad boy" but in a band...You know, your average senior. Everything about him is predictable until he meets Gobija Zaksawskas, his family's Lithuanian exchange student.

Gobi is exactly the opposite of what Perry was expecting. She is not hot, she is a geek and very strange. Goodbye to the dreams of a hot European chick turning him into a man. :(

Perry though ever the good guy is convinced to miss his bands first real gig in NY to take Gobi to prom. After this dance nothing will ever be the same for Perry again.

What a fun time. This is a fast and most enjoyable read. Get ready for plenty of surprises and a wild rompus through New York's grittier side. Buckle your seat belts and join Perry as he spends a unforgettable night learning things about himself and who he wants to be. Revenge is sweet when you are riding with a crazy European chick! Au Revoir!!!

On prom night, a teenage boy is horrified to have his date, an ungainly exchange student staying with his family, reveal her true identity as an assassin out for revenge.

I was amused by the basic conceit of an ugly duckling turning, not into a swan, but a hawk, and by the college application questions that began each chapter. I was however too sexist to enjoy seeing a perfectly healthy young male being bullied by a girl. Also, though I love women action heroes, I cringed the amount of damage this girl suffered and I couldn't believe the physical exploits she performed despite that damage.

Still, I would be happy to see this made a movie.

Au Revoir is a very silly, very fun quick read. Perry is a normal teen. He would rather play a gig in Manhattan with his rock band than go to the prom, but his parents force him to take their geeky, frumpy, anti-social Lithuanian exchange student to the prom before she heads back to Europe. On prom night, Gobija comes down the stairs wearing a hideous traditional Lithuanian festival dress. Perry is mortified, and of course, his fears are realized when, as soon as they enter the prom, the high school bullies pick a fight. Perry runs away. Gobija puts all three football players in the hospital. She then convinces Perry to drive to Manhattan where she can get them into Jay Z's night club. What 18 year old kid would say no to that? Upon arrival, Gobija goes into the bathroom looking like a 1930's Frau great-grandmother and emerges a few minutes later looking like Angelina Jolie in Mr. and Mrs. Smith - giant gun and all. Next thing Perry knows they are fleeing the police and he is an accessory to murder. Turns out Gobija is an assassin with a very long hit list and a very short timeline. How is Perry going to save himself and stop Gobija? How do you stop a highly trained killing machine? What was she doing living with his family all those months? How is he going to explain bullet holes in his father's $80,000 Jaguar? Au Revoir Crazy European Chick will appeal to all readers who just want a good entertaining read.

I'm a geezer but I've just served 5 years as librarian at a K-3 school. I read chapter books to the 2-3 grades and picture books to the K-1 group. I've become a big fan of YA literature and bought this on Kindle two years ago but had not read it. My Bad. This book was fantastic. Well written, plotting perfect, pace super fast and funny. I have recommended it to several other people at the school this morning and just ordered the sequel. A funny, clean YA novel that even GEEZERS can enjoy. A very pleasant surprise and great way to spend the weekend.
