Release Blitz & Review for Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas

Title: Punk 57
Genre: New Adult
Author: Penelope Douglas
Release Date: October 21, 2016

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."


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+.

Review: 5 STARS!!

Penelope Douglas is one of my favorite authors and this book really blew me away. Punk 57 is raw, gritty, sexy & real.

Ryen is one of my favorite female characters that Penelope Douglas has written. She is pretending to be someone she isn't yet at the same time, she shows the real parts of herself. Ryen is strong yet weak and she struggles with her weakness. She doesn't want to be weak, but she doesn't know how to get out of where she is at. Misha is her escape and then only one who really knows her. She confides in him and shows him the girl underneath all of the fake. Ryen is the character that surprises you. She is the one that when the book is done, you are completely in love with her character.

Misha is downright sexy. He is a bad boy rocker who loves Ryen, but not the Ryen she shows everyone. Misha is heartbroken and feeling guilty and my heart just hurts for him. I loved that Misha pushed Ryen until she showed her true self to him. He was never embarrassed or cared what people thought about him and his actions. Misha never apologized for who he was, but he only showed his sweet side with Ryen. He stood up for the people being bullied and his love gave strength to Ryen.

This book was angst & passion filled. I was on the edge of my seat for some parts, fanning myself for others and just holding my kindle so tight because I was so invested in this book and these characters. This book isn't like anything you have read. It will take what you assume you know is going to happen and flip your mind upside down. Misha & Ryen embark on a journey filled with heartbreak, guilt, love & finding your true self. I seriously loved this book and I cannot wait for what Penelope Douglas comes out with next!!
