Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber

For some reason I was confused about this book at the start.

I thought it was chick lit and for the first couple of chapters I thought the protagonist was a chick too.
Maybe it was the yellow cover, the silhouette of the chick or the set-up...talking school, friends, family life, foreign exchange students.


I was so wrong.

This was an action-packed, explosive, assassin fuelled romp through the streets of New York. Perry (the protagonist) quickly discovers that the family exchange student is more than she first appears.

There is absolutely nothing believable or plausible about the story. I can't even tell you if it's well written as I raced through it so quickly. But it was fun in a short attention span kind of way.

I've now handed it over to my 15 year old stepson to see if it's the boys own adventure that I think it really is.

P.S. I often get caught up in the different covers that appear for certain books and what it might say about the various countries concerned. The UK and Australian cover is the yellow one. The NY cityscape is the American cover and the German cover is red.
