Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
YA? NA? Whatever.
One of the best books I read this year (2017).
believable, convincing teens growing up, complicated, but interesting romance, a few NSFW sex scenes. Abuse and bullying, veering into rape. A little social media used expertly - could have been more for my taste, but maybe it was more realistic this way, with RL playing a more important part, but the threat of Facebook and Youtube always showing clips forever playing a dark role of exposure and making the bullying last also forever, when in the past it would have been over and forgotten by some in weeks or months.
Not sure wether this counts as a standalone, as there are books about some of the minor characters, but I guess that is only in the same world, so not considered a series.
A strong, important book I recommend highly, worth way more than the 5stars I can give, one of the best books I read this year, both with a message and entertaining. Would really like to see this filmed.
