Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas

 

 

Blurb

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Douglas, comes the latest New Adult romance of love, hate, and everything in between…

“We were perfect together. Until we met.”

Misha

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.

Ryen

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+.

Review 5 Stars

I didn’t know what to expect from this book. 

What I got was outstandingly different.

This book is a high school romance but it’s so much more than that. 

Ryen is not your standard teenage girl, I didn’t particularly like her. But I could totally relate to her. I think at one point in all our lives we’ve all been her, I certainly have. I don’t like that about myself but it was real and honest.

Misha is a confused and angry young man. Weirdly I found his anger and intensity incredibly sexy. 

I am well aware how creepy it is that I found the teenage character sexy. But let’s be honest this is a sexy book. 

There’s some dirty little sex scenes and I’ll admit to being a little hot and bothered.

I think what I loved most about this book was the underlying messages. The ideals and morals for modern society. I might be looking too deep into this story but this is what I took from it.

This is a unique beautiful take on the high school romance and I loved it!!

5 stars.
