Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas
*****5 AMAZING stars*****
I have to pick and read a book according to my state of spirit. I don’t know if I made myself clear or if you understand me but lately, I had a weird temper. And this book was perfect for me. Sometimes I want to read something dark, mind-fucking-blowing, with abuse and suffering or action or suspense. Sometimes something light, romantic, sometimes something HOT or EXTRA HOT, and sometimes something young, pure, innocent, funny and hot like this.
Books like this keep my spirit and my soul young, and remind me of my adolescence, of first love, of the butterflies in my stomach.
I’m in love with this young characters and especially with their story. They gave me butterflies. I had the same sensation that I had when I was devouring Corrupt. Corrupt was my favorite book of the year. Reading both books, Corrupt and Punk 57, was like seeing a movie. It was like I was there with the characters. The gave me chills. God, I loved this book from the first page. I LOVED the attraction between them. It was AMAZING.
Ryen and Misha “met” in fourth grade, when their schools attended at a project, “pen pals”. Ryen teacher thought that Misha is a girl, and Misha’s teacher taught that Ryen is a boy, so they hooked they. Ryen and Misha discovered the mistake, but they continued to write to each other. And this way they became best friends and even more, just they don’t realize, YET.But one day, Misha though he wants more, and so…he begins to search for more. But the destiny has other plans for them. And this is where the story becomes interesting.
I am not from the U.S.but I don’t think the high school life is any different.Actually, I think high school life is the same, no matter where you are from.The kids are mean. Everyone wants to fit in, to be popular and awesome no matter who are they hurting or how. It’s a shame that the kids this day are sucked in this false life, under false appearance and this way they lost themselves. They forget the true values and meaning of life. What is really important and I think the most dangerous thing for the teenagers this day is the environment, their company, their friends or better their so called “friends”.
I felt sorry for Ryen. She just wanted to be accepted to fit in. To be a normal kid/teenager, with friends. And this transformed her, made her who she wasn’t. Sometimes I hated her, she was so stupid. I wished she was more strong and more mean with Layla. But she was scared.
Misha. …I loved the guy. I understand him with all. And I was really surprised by the real reason of his to came in the life of Ryen.
“She can be a nightmare, but this still feels better than any dream”
P.S. The Devils Night really exist? Is it really true?
