Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday participants choose a book that they are "waiting on" or hasn't been released yet. This week I'm waiting for some awesome-ness:

Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Publication Date: October 25, 2011
Pages: 192
PreOrder It: Amazon

Perry Stormaire is a normal high school senior– he is busy applying to college and rehearsing with his band –until he agrees to go to the prom with the Lithuanian exchange student who is staying with his family. It turns out that Gobi Zaksauskas is not the mousy teenager that she seems but rather an attractive, confident trained assassin. Instead of going to the prom, Perry finds himself on a wild ride through the streets of New York City as Gobi commandeers the Jaguar his father lent him for the prom in order to take out her targets. Perry learns a lot about himself – and ends up with some amazing material for his college application essays. --Goodreads
I discovered this book on Goodreads when it didn't have a cover.  It just had the description and the title.  The title told me it was going to have some sass and I love books with attutide, they speak for themselves.  After reading the description, I was spectule, but definitely going to give this book a try.  Plus, I love the cover and the title.  And Joe Schreiber has written a Supernatural novel, my most favorite TV show-made-book, of all time.  I must read this one.  How about you?

What are you waiting for?
