My personal Rating- 
Erynn Mangum has done it again. Not only does “Paige Torn” have a hilarious main character, there’s a crazy (fun!) best friend, a great guy, it’s set in Texas, there’s a ton of Spiritual Content, and Paige works at an adoption agency. Yep, that’s what makes this novel fabulous. Paige honestly reminds me of myself at many points, and needless to say, I definitely think Erynn Mangum hit it out of the ball park with this one.
