There also seemed to be a lot and nothing going on all at once.
I’m glad Ryen realised she could be herself. I’m more than happy that she went to help Manny. I’m glad JD and Ten proved more human and less Bully- I think I would’ve liked more of them in the book, especially JD. Trey definitely deserved what he got and so did Misha’s mum- I was disappointed that that was her actually.
It’s a good read. They’re all kind of bullies until they accept who they are and who they’ve hurt and start to make amends.
Almost every girl wants to be seen, to be noticed even if it means their own unhappiness. There is so much about the main girl that resonated with me. She was me, or I was her in my teenage years.
This book is about so much more than coming to terms with loss and grief, its about acceptance and love. And moving forward.
I feel like everyone who has ever been in our main gals shoes needs to read this book.
Now on the other hand lets not forget Misha, he was definitely unexpected and stood the test of time. I loved his charcter for needing those answers and wanting what he did. Everything that boy did meant something. Was for a purposes and as heaet breaking a purpose as it was, it was worth it for both of them.
The characters have written to eachother since they were young children and became best penpal friends . But when Misha realizes she’s in the same room at a party and meets her but realizes she isn’t who he thought she was all goes south fast.
There’s issues such as grief and loss , heart ache, school yard bullying , lies and deceit and all those juicy kinds of things a good angsty book has !
I loved their journey! And am curious about Misha’s friends and cousins stories now too ! (I think this is a spin off to another series
By this author but you definitely don’t have to have read them !
Ryen is not the most likeable character to begin with but she does grow on you and I think she is a very realistic portrayal of high school girls. Misha is the quiet, brooding bad boy that everybody loves. They may have pushed each other's buttons continuously but their connection was undeniable. I just had to know how their story would play out. The underlying messages of love and acceptance are really relatable for this age group.
Punk 57 is full of angst, heartache, steamy chemistry and a ton of drama... everything I love in a new adult romance. This book has been around for a few years now so I'm a bit late to the party, but if you haven't read it yet and love new adult romance then definitely check it out.
YES, that's right, I thought I would read a couple of chapters late last night and here I am at 7am on a work day after staying up all night because this absolutely amazing story had my undivided attention from the first pages.
This story was like no other that I have read and I just could not stop until I finally turned the last page and discovered all the secrets that were so wonderfully interwoven in this unique story.
Misha & Ryen's story will reach you on so many levels that I can not truely convey just how incredible this story is.
Don't read the reviews, one click and read the book, just start it on a weekend or day off work.
This was my 1st P Douglas book and definitely won't be the last that I will read from this very talented Author.
The chemistry between these two characters was off the chains. I could not put this book down it consumed me from the very first page and I loved every minute of it.
I also really like how it entwined with the characters from the Devils night series.
I wish there was MORE!
I'm also a bit late to the party to review this book as I did read this some time last year and have re read it multiple times since then because i just can't get over these characters. I love it so much!

I didn’t like Ryen. I didn’t like Misha. The idea of the story started out with potential. They’ve been pen pals since childhood but have never met. When they do meet she is nothing like the person she was in her letters. She’s nasty, fake, pretentious and an utter cow.
I get that the author meant to make her two faced but she had zero redeeming features. And where did the random Laboutins come from?
Misha is a ball of rage who blew too hot and cold for me.
Carnal sin for me in a book is to throw in some random anal action and it go from, no thanks I don’t want to do that, to let’s get is on with no prep and no lube. Let’s be real.
I kept thinking it had to get better, the potential really was there. Unghhhhh I hate it when that happens.
What a spectacular story!
I think at some point we have all been where Ryen is throughout this book, think we have all changed ourselves to suit others when we really shouldn’t have and reading this only proves that. Obviously I figured it’s out a while back (because I’m old or at least that’s what my YA’s say lol) but reading Ryen’s journey made me think back and wonder if I would have been happier growing up if I had had someone like Misha. Someone who isn’t scared to confront the truth and yes probably.
Honest to goodness this story needs to be read, it needs to be read by everyone and I’m seriously glad that I have.
Ryen isn’t a bad person. But she isn’t good. She embodies the dirty, gritty, indifferent sides of our personas. But she’s been given a chance to redeem herself. She tried to be brave. She does and acts as we might hope to act in her situation.
But it isn’t a beautiful budding love. It’s hard hitting. Misha is written well, but some of the angst we experience through Ryen don’t come across quite as well with Misha, and this is my only criticism. Misha has done his growing outside of the narrative, he’s already done a lot of his atoning. Whilst the story outside of the pages would have made this novel the weight of a concrete block, I did wish for more on that front.
That all said, I did love the story, and undoubtedly I will come back to it eventually when I’m ready to re-digest that which I missed on my first read through.
The characters where fantastic and to say that although this is a young adult book it was still brilliant, for me they really didn't appear that young at all. This book went from Friendship, then hate and then love, it was "mean" girls at its finest in my opinion and when all the cards are laid on the table it makes for a thrilling love story.
Misha and Ryen were just brilliant and for me, I would love to see a book of all that happened for them. His rise to fame and them becoming the team that we know that they are. Maybe one day, we can only hope. This book is a total recommend for me. Next up for me is Corrupt.....
I very nearly gave up on this book before page 60. I found the first half very slow but the latter half I quite enjoyed. I am glad I persevered as it did finish well, with no loose ends.
My greatest disappointment was the lack of love I had for the two main characters. I felt pity towards Reyan (the girl), and Misha (the guy) I liked at the start, hated in the main, and liked again in the last couple of chapters. I think that's what the author aims for but it didn't make for comfortable reading. There seemed to be a number of characters who just appeared with no real background, and felt a little skated over but were actually quite useful to the story.
There's a lot of passion later in the book, with high octane teenage hormones racing around, and actually as a 40 something, it took me back to the no holds barred approach to teenage life and that was nice.
What I really liked about this book was the hidden story, an event that affected Misha throughout the book but isn't really described in full till that end of the book.
So, overall it wasn't dreadful, and it did take some effort to get through but I take ownership over not reading the synopsis properly
