After reading a lot of thrillers, I thought of giving another genre a try. That’s when I came to read Punk 57. After two days reading it non-stop during holidays in a paradise-like island, it became one of my favorite books of all time. So much so, that I wanted to reread it as soon as the book ended.
So, what was it that made this book special? Well, for me, was the fact that it was one of my first new adult romance. It not only delivered plot, character growth and lots and lots of drama, but it also had steamy sex scenes.
The overall experience of this book is the fact that one can relate to its core: the want of being accepted vs the need of accepting oneself. Showing yourself as you are vs showing what you think people may like about you. It is a story of finding oneself, honesty, friendship and love.
Granted, it has its issues, some clichés like the high school mean girl, some violence (although not domestic) and maybe some problems with consent.
I cannot be completely objective with this review as I had (thanks to my boyfriend) an interaction with the author @peneplope.dougas (or at least whoever runs her instagram) which made my love for this even more. The interaction is seen if you scroll through the pictures as well as the whole gift I receive with the physical copy (courtesy of my boyfriend). First picture is the full gift. Second picture is the ongoing reread and marking of the physical copy (first time was via scribd) .
This book forever holds my heart. And is the first one in my slowly increasing Pen Doug only book shelves collection .
PS Pen Doug of you are reading please add me to your PR list :) .
