“We were perfect together. Until we met.”
I can’t help but smile at the lyrics in her letter. She misses me.
In fifth grade, my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student, Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed.
It didn’t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever…
And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us.
Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.
We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it?
Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances?
F*ck it. I need to meet her.
I just don’t expect to hate what I find.
He hasn’t written in three months. Something’s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch.
Without him around, I’m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It’s my own fault. I should’ve gotten his phone number or picture or something.
He could be gone forever.
Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it.
*Punk 57 is a stand alone New Adult romance. It is suitable for ages 18+.
❤ MY REVIEW ❤
5 + stars!
Penelope Douglas is a motherf*cking GENIUS.
She completely blew it out of the water with PUNK 57. This book was brilliant, angsty, sexy, flawlessly written and just…EVERYTHING. No one writes teen angst like Penelope Douglas does. NO. ONE.
Punk 57 is so completely different from anything I’ve ever read. The storyline was original, unique, utterly unpredictable and so well thought out. You can just tell the author put her heart and soul in this story. It was so much MORE than just a romance—it was coming-of-age, peer pressure, self-discovery. I wanted to savor this book, to draw it out as long as I could but it was IMPOSSIBLE. I think I ended up finishing it at 5:30 in the morning when I had a class that started 3 hours later… I had zero regrets.
It’s so easy to want to dislike Ryen but then again she’s one of the most relatable characters I’ve ever read about. I may have not agreed with her choices but I understood her. Douglas writes the BEST bad boys and MISHA… *sigh* he’s exactly the type of brooding bad boy I LOVE—not to mention he can be down right naughty at times. Together these two were so f*cking explosive. They had some deliciously sexy scenes that will for sure leave you feeling hot under the collar.
Punk 57 is gritty, edgy, addictive and altogether unputdownable. This book got me out of a long book funk only to put me in ANOTHER book funk. I haven’t been able to finish a single book since this one. Simply put, Punk 57 is a masterpiece.
