"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

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.
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!!!
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.
