Say Hello to Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick
Joe Schreiber's young adult novel Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick is quite possibly the most fun novel I've read all year. The novel is a slim 200 pages of pure adrenaline and fun. It is a must read for anyone who craves action flicks and guess what? The film rights to Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick have already been snatched up by Paramount. If I had to sum up this novel in a sentence I'd tell you it's one heck of a ride. Don't take my word for it though, check out Danielle's review.
In a book that is little shy of two hundred pages, a lot happens. Perry’s world is literally flipped upside down in the course of one night.One minute Perry and Gobi are at prom, and then they are in a New York City club and a dead man is being flown through a window and landing on Perry’s car. The events in the book continue in a rapid-fire pace until the very last chapter. The quick pace wraps the reader up in the action of the book, feeling flung around and confused at times just like Perry is. The fight and action sequences of the book occur very quickly, but are detailed enough that the reader understands who is fighting who and what is occurring. The plot builds momentum until the climax where a large, epic, action-packed scene occurs that wraps up the major storylines in a hail of bullets.
