This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Paige Turned
TH1NK (April 1, 2014)
Erynn Mangum

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!


Despite her valiant efforts, Paige Alder seems stuck in chaos. Her new job as youth intern keeps her hopping from coffee shop to coffee shop all summer long, but at least she’s loving the one-on-one time she gets to spend with the girls. The unfortunate side-effect is that now, four weeks of laundry fills her apartment. Plus, she barely has time to help her sister and best friend with their weddings! And even worse? Something is definitely wrong between her and Tyler. She apologized for what he thought he saw happen with Luke. Can’t they move past it? Or could there be something he’s not telling her—something that could change everything?

Paige Turned is another fun read from Erynn Mangum that is perfect for the older teen/young adult audience. In this third book of the Paige Alder series, Paige continues to struggle with finding time for everything on her schedule. She loves her new job with her church youth ministry but it keeps her hopping from one Starbucks to another for meetings with the teen girls under her leadership. Then there are two upcoming weddings that she will carry out the duties of maid-of-honor. A strained relationship with her boyfriend Tyler and an old flame who shows up much to often, keeps Paige looking to her Bible for answers and comfort.

The author’s combination of humor and a thoughtful Christian message makes for excellent reading. It was fun following Paige’s ups and downs and the ending was perfect. I would recommend this entire series as well as Mangum’s other books, especially for teen readers.
