Continuing with the Yada Yada theme, Neta Jackson starts a new series highlighting another primary character from the Yada Yada prayer group. This time, Avis Douglas takes center stage as we get to learn more about the personal life of the calm, cool and collected Yada Yada group leader and principal at Bethune Elementary School. As the story goes deeper into Avis' personal life, the author introduces new characters to the story - Kathryn Davies (Kat) and a few of Kat's college friends. From there, most of the story is about Kat and Avis. Some of the characters from previous Yada Yada series are included in the story line; others receive an honorable mention. (If you haven't read any of the series before this book, you shouldn't get lost in trying to figure out the characters.)
The author continues in fashion as before, discussing real life subjects (HIV, homeless, racial differences in the church), and showing how God's love and faithfulness is available to provide strength when dealing with seemingly tough matters.
Overall, I liked the book. I'm a fan of the Yada Yada Series (Prayer Group, House of Hope), so I was looking forward to this book when I learned the yada yada concept was going to continue. I thought the story moved slow at times, but I still enjoyed it. I would have preferred to read more about the existing yada yada characters in this book instead of Kat and her friends, but I'm still looking forward to the next release from the series. Overall rating 3.5 stars.
