The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real by Neta Jackson

The sisters of the Yada Yada Prayer Group are learning how to be real—with each other and with God.

After a particularly exhausting year with the Yada Yada Prayer Group, all Jodi Baxter wants is a break. She even asks God for a little “dull and boring” in the new year. Instead she finds that when you’re open to His plans, life is unpredictable—in the best and hardest ways.

Jodi’s life is suddenly full of changes, and they can be described as anything but boring. Out of all the Yada Yadas, God has Leslie “Stu” Stuart move into the Baxter’s upstairs flat, which requires a lot of patience—and tongue-biting—on Jodi’s part. She’s continually unnerved by guilt stemming from the accident and dreads the day when she comes face-to-face with Hakim’s mother. Plus, Bandana Woman, who was safely locked up in prison, has returned. Phew!

Through prayer and friendship, the Yada Yadas are getting real. Dull and boring? Not a chance.

On the plus side, we do get to finally have a glimpse behind Stu's 'Ms. Perfect' mask. I also appreciated the writer's obvious love and respect for Hispanic culture.On the minus side, the author's apparent anti-Catholic bias detracts from the positive parts of the book. I felt there was too much emphasis on Amanda's quincianera party being 'not Mass' with Delores's Catholic relatives being portrayed as being a bit fussy. I realize Amanda isn't Catholic, but must so much have been made of that? I've always been disappointed that none of the Yada Yadas are Roman Catholic. I try to keep an open mind about other denominations, but I would like the same courtesy extended to my faith as well. Even though the references to Casimir Pulaski day were probably not intended to be negative, I was still smarting from the 'non-Catholic' feeling I got from the book. I married into a Polish-American, mostly Catholic family. A good number of them live or have lived in the Chicago area. I'm sure many of them celebrate Casimir Pulaski day. I think it's wonderful that Chicago schools do that!

This book is as real as real life is. I've never read a book where I feel like I'm actually living the lives of the characters. They have so much going on in their lives that I wish I could participate in. I really liked Amanda's quinceanera and what Denny did for her. I wish more father's were that loving towards their daughters, society would be so much better off if they did. I also liked the Polar Plunge opening in the beginning of the book. No way you would catch me doing that! The writing of this book immediately hooks you thus making the books very addictive. You can't stop reading because they are so much like a slice of real life. The news stories sprinkled throughout the book add to the realism. Even though the main character is Jodi, because the group is so diverse it is easy to find someone in the group you can relate to. Once again my only complaint about the book is the way the relationship with Becky is handled. Like I said before I have no problems with forgiving someone for the wrong they did to you and it's good of them to help her out. It just seems to me that in the book, the group members who feel uncomfortable around Becky or are still being affected by what she did to them are in the wrong and not as spiritually mature as the ones that have moved on. I have been in a similar scenario with Jodi and it took me a while to get over it but it wasn't because of weak faith. It just seems very unrealistic and makes the reader feel that you're not good enough of a Christian. But that just proves the power of good writing, if it makes you rethink about what you believe in.
