Everyone knows they can count on Paige Alder. But between volunteering at church, putting in overtime at work, and helping her best friend plan an anniversary party and wedding, she's lucky to grab a cheese stick for dinner.

Paige can't even remember the last time she had a few minutes to relax or dig into God's Word. Then she meets laid-back Tyler, an attractive, Jesus-loving guy. Will he be able to help Paige get her priorities on track?

I read Ms. Mangum’s first series, but haven’t had the opportunity to read any of the rest, until I got PAIGE TORN in the mail. I did enjoy getting to know Paige. Like her, I wondered what her best friend, Layla, saw in Peter—he seemed to totally have no personality (but I’ve known people like that in real life), and sometimes I wanted to shake Paige when she allowed people to take advantage of her so much. Layla was the worst, expecting her to drop everything and do everything for her, like Layla wanted all the credit but none of the work. I got frustrated with Paige as well when Tyler starts showing interest and she kept pushing him away because Layla needs her…

I can’t wait to read the second book in this series, Paige Rewritten, releasing in October. If you like chicklit, first person, present tense style books, and love a good young adult book with a message, then don’t pass up, PAIGE TORN. $14.99. 304 pages.
