It’s prom night—and Perry just wants to stick to his own plan and finally play a much anticipated 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.
Holy Macanoli! I think this has got to be one of the fastest books I have read in a very long time! It started out kind of draggy with Perry wanting to do one thing and as usual his parents wanting him to do what they wanted but once prom night got there oh boy oh boy was Perry and I both in for the surprise of our life! Gobi turns out to be so much more than the usual exchange student..in fact she was not an exchanghe student at all but instead a hired assasin hired to right a huge wrong from the past and she plans on taking Perry with her for the ride no matter how unwilling a soul he is!
Perry is petrified as anybody would be when you find yourself immersed into the danger he found but he was in a hard spot because although he was afraid he still felt something undescribable for Gobi especially as things begin to unravel and he learns more of the actual situation. Gobi opens his eyes to alot of things even things happening in his own life and he has some decisions to make because of it.
A whirwind of a ride! Hang onto your seats because once the car leaves the station slowing down is not an option! You will not be able to put this book down because each breath you take into it more action has spilled onto the pages!
