"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.

REVIEWED BY JILL
I had no idea what I was getting into when I started Punk 57, but I have faith in the author and am so glad I read this book. This is a complete stand-alone and it is easily one of the best books I have read all year. Angst, drama, love and sometimes hate all come together to make this one story you don't want to miss.
Ryen Trevarrow grew up in Falcon's Well as the youngest daughter to a single mom. While she was in fifth grade she had an assignment to write to a child in another school district and instantly hit it off with her pen pal - Misha. Once the assignment was over Ryen and Misha never stopped writing each other and have kept up their letters for the last seven years. Now they are both a few months out from high school graduation when everything changes. Ryen hasn't gotten a letter from Misha in months and has no idea why he would just stop talking to her but she is determined to find it out.
Misha Lare is the oldest child of a single dad and loves both his little sister and his music fiercely. Misha is from the affluent Thunder Bay and while his family is loaded he is very down to earth with all that he does. When the unthinkable happens and Misha loses someone he loves, it sends him into a tailspin. Everything - including his close friendship with Ryen - is in jeopardy if he doesn't fix all the things he has broken.
Penelope Douglas always delivers a flawless, angst-ridden, sexy story that keeps me captivated from the prologue all the way through to the epilogue. This book was a bit different in that it had her signature writing style AND a powerful message reminding us to be who we are first and foremost and let those freak flags fly! You're My Tribe Penelope :)
She dresses for autumn year round, loves anything lemon flavored, and shops at Target almost daily. She lives in Las Vegas with her husband and their daughter.
