Asper Blurry is a writer, poet, thinker, seeker, traveler and much more. She often finds herself in places of different dimensions and cruel whispers, far from the dreamland. But that's the price she pays for her creations and she keeps writing because of this artistic force inside her heart and mind.
Her voice is genuine, blunt and raw, sometimes poetic and mysterious. She writes freely about our ordinary life and the reality of modern young people. She's not afraid of addressing controversial issues such as addictions, depression and intolerance. She's convinced that if her writing touches your soul or makes you feel something, all those nights spent in darkness will be worth it.

Train to the Edge of the Moon, by Asper Blurry, is a raw, gritty look at the lives and relationships of Punk and her cohorts. It is both compelling and controversial, spinning a tale of a young trouble maker who has little regard for other's opinions or the system. Punk becomes the illustration of how youth today see society, as well as their need to fight back against perceived wrongs. While she isn't always a lovable character, she demonstrates the need for change.
At first, the book is a bit slow to get started. I wasn't sure I'd like the character of Punk at first (though I loved her by the end.) There are a lot of details, which becomes a bit overwhelming at first. I wasn't exactly certain where the story was going, so it took a bit for me to get into it. This book expresses passion through language and touches on sensitive topics. It's geared for more of the adult reader.
I was intrigued by the way the author created the character. So many writers want you to love their heroine, but she uses the character of Punk as a symbol almost. There is good and bad. In describing Punk, she describes London, and vice versa. It's such an original perspective. Punk accepts her own character flaws and knows she needs to be a better person. As a reader, I empathize with that. I think the author does a great job of using emotion to show all the shades of a teenager's reality. At points, I had to laugh and high five Punk, with her take no crap attitude. Other times, I wanted to cry with her as she faced the challenges of finding herself.
I'll admit, I was a bit skeptical about reading this book at first. It's not really my usual genre. But, I found pieces of myself in the main character. And I think most readers will find bits of themselves as well.
