Sometimes the person you most need is the one least like you. Kathryn Davies is a bright young woman form a prominent Phoenix family. But after making a leap of faith at a Christian music fest, dropping out of med school, and moving to inner city Chicago, her family all but disowns her. When Kat discovers SouledOut Community Church, she longs to become a part of the multicultural church family. But her tendency to immediately say whatever she’s thinking steps on the toes of nearly everyone she meets—especially Avis Douglass. Avis has a strong faith, is the principal of one of Chicago’s highest performing elementary schools, and is a founding member of SouledOut. But the country’s economic downturn has thrown both her and her husband’s jobs in question. And Avis hasn’t heard from her youngest daughter in months—an estrangement that gnaws at her every day. Where is God in this? Kat’s flamboyant zeal for living a “radical” Christian life is a stark contrast to Avis’s more reserved faith. But in God’s timing, the two women discover they need each other in ways neither of them expected.

    " I love Neta Jackson. Again, a book that I feel very invested in the characters and can't wait to experience life with them. Another great escape read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Adams | 2/14/2014

    " This is a fun and entertaining first entry in the SouledOut Sisters series. Avis Douglass, who many will recognize from the Yada Yada books, is the main character, along with Kat Davies, an idealistic graduate student. The book explores in a thoughtful way issues such as how to seek God's guidance and how to develop a personal relationship with him. "

    " This book is a quick read. It is well written but predictable. Even though it is not completely in a series, it would be better to read most of Neta Jackson's other books before picking up this one. Many of the characters are the same through out her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisabeth | 1/28/2014

    " A little slow getting started, but I was glad to get a glimpse of Avis's life and thoughts. "

    " From the author of the YadaYada Prayer Group comes a new series SouledOut , I have to say personally I was a little disappointed in this book as I loved the YadaYada series and was looking forward to her new series. In Stand by Me , we meet two main women - On the left of the cover we have Avis and on the right we have Kat. The women are complete opposite , but it may just be that the statement of opposites attracting that will ring true in Stand By Me. Avis is celebrating her sixth wedding anniversary with her second husband Peter but things are not going to go to plan as her youngest daughter Rochelle turns up wanting Avis and Peter once again to bail her out. Peter has had enough of it and decides to put his foot down as he tells Avis that she can't keep bailing her daughter out . After this decision, it puts a huge strain on Avis's marriage and when the pair are offered to go to Hawaii for six months courtesy of her other daughter Nony and husband Mark. Will the pair take the trip and is this what they need to rekindle their marriage ? The second person is Kat , three years ago she said goodbye to her family as she chose God and her family not understanding turned their back on Kat . Three years later, Kat has a good group of friends and in Stand by Me has decided to start attending SouledOut Church where she meets Avis - the worship leader. Avis takes a quick dislike to Kat but Kat seems intrigued by Avis and soon a strange friendship between the pair starts to occur. Has God sent both women to each other to help them on their rocky roads ? Find out in Stand By Me by Neta Jackson. "

    " Couldn't get past first few pages. Really disappointed in this series. The Yada Yada series was much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee Margaret | 1/3/2014

    " This is another fun read by Neta Jackson. As you read this book, you get to see stories continue from her other books and meet new characters. When you reach the end, it's a satisfying end (in my opinion) and I'm just looking forward to the next book especially what happens next. "

    " Awesome as usual, can't wait for the next title in this new series! I love the introduction of the college students/recent college grads and Avis's daughter and grandson, it will be great to see where Neta Jackson takes them all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lena | 12/11/2013

    " Fun, easy read. First in SouledOut Sisters Series. Also good are Jackson's, House of Hope Series and Yada, Yada Series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leslie | 10/7/2013

    " This was my least favorite of the books with the Yada Yada girls. Avis' character was totally off, and Kat was annoying throughout. It was hard to get through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 9/12/2013

    " I really enjoy Neta Jackson. I LOVED the Yada Yada Series and the House of Hope series, too. "Stand by Me" was just OK though. I didn't find the characters as engaging in this one, and I'm not sure why. Definitely glad I read it though, and I'll be looking for the next one in the series! "
