Paige Turned

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!

[Note from Mocha with Linda: Erynn and her husband just welcomed their second precious son, Parker, into the world in mid-March! For updates on her life (and adorable pictures!), check out Erynn's blog!


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?

How I wish that Erynn Mangum had been writing books when I was in high school and college! I love her fresh writing style and the bits of humor she includes in her stories. Her characters are totally endearing and completely authentic. I love how she very portrays the faith journeys of the young adults in her books: down-to-earth, grappling with how to live out their faith, struggling with consistency and-at times-issues on which God is convicting them, and utterly believable. I highly recommend this book and series for young adult readers! (And as a word lover, I smile every time I read the titles: Paige Torn, Paige Rewritten (click the title for my review) and now, Paige Turned.
