Paige Rewritten by Erynn Mangum

This week, the

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.

Margie's Comments: Paige Rewritten is the second book in the Paige Alder series. I haven't read the first book, but it stands alone in what is promising to be a very well-written series. The characters are well-drawn and play a vital role in the story line. The first-person point of view is well done, giving the reader an excellent perspective on the events surrounding and affecting Paige. What I like best about the book is the natural way the spiritual thread is woven into the story. Because Paige is well-grounded in her faith, she recognizes herself in the story of the prodigal son. Faced with the sudden appearance of two people from her past she hoped she wouldn't have to deal with again, Paige is forced to face her own role in those events. A very good read that kept my attention, the only drawback was the sudden ending more fitted to the ending of a chapter not the end of a book—even one in a series.
