Waiting On Wednesday - July 20th

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from, Breaking The Spine

This week I’m waiting on,

Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick
by Joe Schreiber
Available: October 2011
Synopsis via Goodreads

Ferris Bueller meets La Femme Nikita in this funny, action-packed young adult novel. 

It’s prom night—and Perry just wants to stick to his own plan and finally play a much anticipated gig with his band in the Big Apple. But when his mother makes him take Gobija Zaksauskas—their quiet, geeky Lithuanian exchange student—to the prom, he never expects that his ordinary high school guy life will soon turn on its head. Perry finds that Gobi is on a mission, and Perry has no other choice but to go along for a reckless ride through Manhattan’s concrete grid with a trained assassin in Dad’s red Jag. 

Infused with capers, car chases, heists, hits, henchmen, and even a bear fight, this story mixes romance, comedy, and tragedy in a true teen coming-of-age adventure—and it’s not over until it’s “au revoir.”

Why I’m “waiting on” this book? I saw this one at ALA and seriously regret not asking if they had an ARC. The title itself is fantastic, and when I got home and had a chance to read the synopsis, I knew this was a book I had to read. Ferris Bueller? Might be showing my age, but enough said!

What are you “waiting on” this week?
