It seems that as soon as Paige gets on track, everything gets complicated again in Paige Rewritten, a novel by author Erynn Mangum. Yeah. It still baffles me somewhat that the Paige Alder novels are labeled as young adult fiction, and even categorized as children's books elsewhere. These books are clearly chick-lit with grownup characters in grownup situations. If any "age" had to be put on them, they'd be new adult novels, not YA, and certainly not children's ones. Anyhow, enough about that. For now. Another enjoyable installment of the series, this is. It's refreshing to read a story about the prodigal son's brother, since the brother who didn't leave home had issues to deal with, too. (Or, I should probably say the prodigal child's sibling.) I get a kick out of Paige's humorous take on things, and I laughed so hard at one point, I had to step away from the book for a while to cope with the hilarity. There were a few things about the story that bothered me a bit. I mean, after Paige spent a whole previous novel learning how to tell folks no, if she now has a low-level stalker who's annoying her, how come she doesn't give a solid NO and nip the whole nuisance in the bud? She keeps saying "annunciate" when I'm pretty sure she means "enunciate." There are places where the story seems to idle or stroll around in circles, sharing no important or new information. And though, after reading the first novel, I was prepared for another cliffhanger ending, I'm still not a fan of the cliffhanger. Endings that hang off a cliff just make a book feel incomplete. Nevertheless, this novel can bring readers right along into the heroine's world, whether or not they've read the first book in the series. And, as before, since I'd decided early that I wanted to read all the Paige Alder novels, the cliffhanger isn't the reason why I'll be moving on to Book Three, which I happily will be.

I enjoyed this second installment of Paige Alder's humorous life. Paige's twenty-third birthday comes with a couple of surprises, but not the traditional, happy kind. Since the first installment of Paige's life, <i>Paige Torn</i> , the protagonist has returned to her daily Bible devotions. Her boss has offered her a raise, and Luke seems to have renewed his interest. I do not like non-endings. The author enjoys cliff hangers and tantalizes the reader into purchasing the next book in the series. Tsk tsk. Thank you to Bonnie at Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and NavPress for my copy.

&quot;There are things in my life that I would like to be permanent. Nail polish that permanently stayed on my toenails. Hair that permanently stayed away from my legs. Sweet tea that was permanently in my fridge. Luke is not one of those things I want permanently in my life. Or even in my city. My mom likes to say that good things come in threes. &quot;Remember that time we went to see The Phantom of the Opera, Paige?&quot; she always says to me. &quot;Not only did our seats get upgraded for free, but we won those tickets to go see Wicked and we met Mariah Carey!&quot; By met, Mom meant &quot;saw from a distance,&quot; and to this day, I still sear it was not Mariah Carey. And if it was her, then I really feel the need to tell her that cornrows are not a flattering hairstyle for her. I'm curious what Mom would say about my current situation. I really don't think I am looking at three good things. Maybe three confusing things. Not not good things.&quot; Paige Alder is ready for some permanence in her life. For one, a job that allows her to utilize the college degree in counseling that she worked hard to achieve, not being a secretary until the day she dies working for Lawman Adoption Agency. Even with the promotion offer sitting on the table to make more money for doing exactly what she's been doing all along leaves her wanting more. She has been trying to figure out her personal life as well with Tyler Jennings. She isn't sure if they are strictly great friends who do things whenever they can or if he wants something more than just someone to hang out with of the opposite sex. And then there is Luke Prestwick, her ex-boyfriend who has decided to move back to town and wants to see if there is a possibility to start over again. Decisions, decisions just what is a girl to do? On top of that, her long lost sister, Preslee has come home with news that she has found God and wants a relationship with her family again including Paige. But is it really that easy to simply forgive despite all the pain she has inflicted on her parents as well as herself when she decided she didn't need them in her life any longer? I received Paige Rewritten by Erynn Mangum compliments of NavPress and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. Once again Erynn has done it again. I absolutely LOVE this series, possibly because I find myself living in Paige Alder's shoes! Such decisions that she has to deal with and wondering just where she is going in life. At some point she has to deal with her sister returning to the family fold and while her parents are easy to forgive, Paige isn't. Like a contemporary twist on the prodigal son, Paige finds herself relating to the older son from the Bible story more than she'd like and even the advice she hands out to her high school girls in Bible Study about forgiveness hard to swallow. How can she talk about the ability for them to forgive people who have hurt them, when she is having a difficult time doing the same? I have to warn you however, this one does end on a cliff hanger and will make you wish the third novel in the series was available immediately! For me, this one once again hits a stellar homerun for my book lover's heart and I give this one a 5 out of 5 stars. This is the second novel in the Paige Alder series, with Paige Torn being the first. While you don't have to read the first one to truly LOVE this one, I would highly recommend it. Erynn's writing style is so easy going, you truly feel like you're more than just reading this novel. You feel like you're living it! Don't let the cover fool you, you'll want to pick this entire series up!
