Why I checked it out: The title intrigued me. Plus, it’s a 2014 Gateway Award nominee.
Why I liked this book: This is a fun, light read and all the chapter titles are college essay topics that relate (though sometimes very indirectly) to what will happen in the chapter. Gobi, a foreign exchange student from Lithuania, stays with Perry’s family during his senior year, but Perry doesn’t really spend much time with her because she’s very mousy. When his parents make him take her to prom, he discovers she’s actually a highly trained assassin.
Three words that describe this book: fast-paced, action-packed and humorous.
