Paige comes from a good American family that has managed to coast along with minimal drama-- until her younger sister, Preslee, (what kind of name is that?) breaks her parents heart by running off with a band as a kind of live-in groupie.
Paige's own heart was broken by her first love, Luke, around the same time, and like a bad penny, he resurfaces...and keeps popping up throughout the book. Luke is also her best friend's brother, so it's hard to keep him from infiltrating her thoughts, etc.
The book is written in the first person in a humorous style that has an honest resonance. I felt that many young adult groups contain one or two "Paiges" who desire to find Mr. Right, but inevitably end up kissing some Mr. Wrongs along the way.
I think that this book would encourage college age young women who, like Paige, want to live an authentic and meaningful life.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
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!
ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
