Synopsis

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 muchanticipated
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.”

This ebook includes a sample chapter of PERRY'S KILLER PLAYLIST.

WAPL Teens

After taking out a couple of guys ripping on Perry for taking Gobi to the prom, she and Perry head to New York in his dad's Jaguar (a total bribe - Perry's dad has only let him back it out of the drive and, sometimes, sit in it when he's studying).
