Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas

Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas (standalone)
Genre: New Adult

"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 suitable for ages 18+.

"If someone doesn't want us, we need to stop wanting them."

I popped my Penelope Douglas cherry and this baby is definitely one of my favorite reads this year! I devoured this sucker in one day and tremendously enjoyed it - with all the bitchiness, ugliness, and hotness it came with. 

Punk 57 portraits perfectly how ugly, difficult and painful high school can be. How young individuals struggle - struggle to fit in, stand out, struggle to find acceptance. 

Misha and Ryen have an unlike friendship, it's strong, honest, and deep.....until they meet by accident. 

"I know him very little, but after every encounter, I feel like I know him less."

I enjoyed the compelling way, Penelope captured the characters feelings, doubts, struggles, and heartache. I was glued to my kindle by her blunt yet captivating way of writing, and fantastic way of storytelling. 

I'm usually not a big fan of New Adult/high school romance but this novel exceeded my expectations. I don't want to give too much away of the plot, that's why I cut my review short, but I leave you all with this advice: READ PUNK57, you won't regret it!!

"I'm done here. I'm going home. I'll be anything you want, even gone if that's what you need. I love you."

  1. I am Alecia used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes…i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Dr Abalaka); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn’t mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I’m sure any help/ extra work will benefit him as He travel marriage,finance, job promotion ,gambling voodoo,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,it’s all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
    more. his cell phone number 5182932141 !
