This book can just be mind-blowing fast. If you like fast-paced, easy to read, no deep stuff then Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is for you. :) Actually, i had a lot of fun reading this book and at each chapter there is a college question and some fits in with the chapter, pretty cool? Besides, don't you just like the sound of the title? Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick . Yup, it's got a ring.
This book starts out as Perry has to take out Gobi, the "crazy european chick" to a prom, because his parents made him to because Gobi wants to. Of course, he's doesn't want to because he has a gig with his band Inchworm, but instead, follows along with it and afterwards, Gobi, the silent transfer student, turns into a crazy assassin girl.
It all ends in one night and the next morning, but you get to see Gobi and Perry's personality. Perry is just a geeky guy that just wants to get to college and just live normally. His reaction on things were just plain crazy, understandable, and enjoyable to read. While Gobi is just plan kick-ass. She can seriously keep her back and stick up for people. Her back-story gets uncovered as the story goes along.
I really liked how it just got laid out and how even though it was one night, you just feel there is something drastically changed about them as the night wore off. But all the shenanigans that came along were wonderful, and before I knew it, I was done reading this book. It just went by like woosh! Just like that.
