Paige Rewritten by Erynn Mangum {CFBA}

NavPress (October 8, 2013)

A few things about her:

So, if we were having this conversation in person, we would probably be hanging out at Starbucks or one of the cute coffeehouses in town. I’m nuts about all things coffee, I’m crazy about all things pink and girly, and I love, love, love the Food Network! I’m married to my best friend and the most amazing guy ever, Jon. He is amiable toward coffee, does not like anything pink or girly and tolerates the Food Network. So, we make a good match! In July 2010, we became parents to one of the funniest, cutest, sweetest little guys in the whole world (and nope, we aren’t biased at all!), our Nater-Tot, who is legally known as Nathan. Most days, I’m cleaning up messes, making goofy faces, trying to fit some writing in, and just LOVING the life that God has given me!


Paige Alder is in a really good place. She’s dating nice guy Tyler. Her boss has offered her a raise. Her walk with God is strong. Life is great—and that’s when things start to change.

First, the youth pastor at church keeps asking Paige to work with him full-time. Then her sister shows up newly engaged and wanting to reconnect, even though they haven’t spoken in years. And now former boyfriend Luke has come back into her life. How is Paige supposed to know what the right decisions are?

This warm and humorous second book in the Paige Alder series will help young girls work through important issues, such as forgiving others and obeying God.

My Review:
A cute, entertaining, read!

I missed out on reading Paige Torn, the first in the Paige Alder series, due to a busy schedule, but I jumped in when I received the chance to review Paige Rewritten. I don't remember enjoying such a fun, humorous, story since I read Janice Thompson's books!

Mrs. Mangum is a wonderful storyteller and really brings Paige to life. More often than I would rather admit I saw myself in Paige and I found myself relating to her on a deep level. I've been where she's at and I like to believe that I came out of it hand-in-hand with God. I sincerely hope Paige finds the right path as well.

I love novels written in first person simply because I love the intimate look inside a character's head. I feel like I get to know them on such a personal level. Mrs. Magnum pens first person in such an amazing way. Paige comes right off the page (no pun intended) and sounds real. Her circumstances and her situations are real. She doesn't have a perfect, pristine, life. She struggles. I think that's why I like her so much.

Fans of Thompson will certainly enjoy Magnum's books. I highly recommend to teenage girls ages fifteen and older for both readability and content.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via CFBA in return for an honest review of my opinions, which I have done. Thanks!
