    WOW. What a crazy whirlwind!
     I loved the format! It starts as a college application style question/answer form. But you can tell, Perry just get’s too caught up in this chain of events to answer the questions seriously.
    He just rolls with it! There was some explicit sexual implications, but overall it could have been 'worse' (by worse, I mean it could have been way too descriptive...)
     I absolutely adored the style, the way you discover Gobi, and the way Perry discovers himself. You want to grit your teeth, cheer, and scream…sometimes all at once.  I read this on the staircase at my place, and finished it within an hour. I thought I knew what was going to happen…then I didn’t….then I did.
    But at the end, it didn’t matter if I saw it coming. It has a Mary Poppins ending (that is,  it was practically perfect in every way!)
    This book could be read as a standalone or, like me, you’ll look forward to Perry’s next adventure. I was wholly satisfied with this read.

    more from this reviewer

    Lives up to the buzz!

    This was one of the "hot" titles in 2011. The narrator is Perry, a high school senior whose family is hosting a foreign exchange student named Gobi. Unfortunately for Perry and his friends, Gobi is not a hot Swedish model wannabe, but a plain Lithuanian wall flower. Gobi doesn't seem interested in making friends or fitting in, but content to remaining invisible at school. Until she gets it in her head that she wants to attend senior prom. And Perry is nominated as her escort. Poor Perry.

    Unable to worm his way out of the date, Perry is resigned to escorting Gobi to the prom and does his best to see that she has a nice time. Perry is a genuinely nice guy, and couldn't be more surprised when Gobi turns out to be much more than the shy wall flower she pretended to be!

    Taken along on a wild ride through Manhattan, Perry acts as Gobi's chauffeur while she crosses names off of her hit list. Literally. It's a crazy adventure, yet the author keeps things fun and almost believable. A much more enjoyable ride than Collateral (or any of the hit man/innocent bystander movies out there)!

    Gave this one a 4/5 as it's a fast, fun read. Really got a kick out of the college application questions at the start of each chapter, as they tied things together nicely. Liked Perry and even grew to like Gobi, once we got to know her and her motivations. Looking forward to reading more from the author, as he's an original talent with a good sense of humor!
