Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas

“We were perfect together. Until we met.”

Misha

I can’t help but smile at the words 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.

I can’t help but smile at the words 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 number or picture or something.

He could be gone forever.

Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it.

Needless to say, I love all Penelope Douglas’s books. She’s an author I follow and read everything she writes. There is yet to see if one of her books does not reach my 10 star folder.

If you haven’t read Punk 57, do it now since this high school Pen Pal Love-Hate book will be sure on your re-reads folder after that.

Misha and Ryen are pen pals friends. They have been writing to each other for the past 7 years when 1 night changed everything for Misha. He stopped writing without an explanation.

After 3 months without a word, she still writes him because she promised she will never stop.

While dealing with her loss, a boy named Mason comes to Ryen’s school and begins to stand up to her mean girl bully. Misha and Mason are the same guy, but she doesn’t know that since he is on a mission. Since their towns are next to each other, they never met or know how they look. But Misha knows.

Now, he also knows Ryen is different in person to the girl he receives letters from. Why is she running this double life? Is his mission more important than the girl who has his heart? To love or hate her?

The story is breathtaking. You will be sucked right into the story and feel with them. It’s what I crave more on romance novels!

On a plus side Misha is related to one of our boys in another series of her. But I’ll let you figure it out yourself. If you want to know it, message me in the comments and I’ll reply.
