LaToya Hankins does not disappoint. Her latest novel is like "School Daze" meets "Waiting to Exhale." (If only Spike Lee were a feminist.) I'm not a soror myself, but I could certainly relate to the adventures of line sisters, Kiara, Gloria, and Donna, three unique college students seeking to join a sorority, their personal development, love interests, tragedies and triumphs. It's a good read.

This book was an awesome read. Characters reminded me of my time in college absent ever pledging but knowing how sisterhood between close friends never really ends no matter what life throws your way.

"K-RHO: The Sweet Taste of Sisterhood

Book Description:

"K-Rho: The Sweet Taste of Sisterhood chronicles the strength of sorority life for three Copper Road University sophomores. Track star Kiara Michaels didn't expect to find two lifelong friends at her sorority membership interview. But life had other plans, leading her to meet Donna-a Bible quoting straight talker-and Gloria-a loquacious high achiever. In the semesters following membership induction, Kiara confesses a festering secret, Donna steers a bumpy course with her unfaithful boyfriend, and Gloria can't find a love match. When a lustful encounter and brutal assault turn Kiara's collegiate experience upside down, the two friends are her saving grace. Fast-forward ten years later and Kiara can't balance life's increasing responsibilities, Donna has departed a broken marriage, and Gloria can't reconcile feelings of attraction for a close friend. Join Kiara, Donna, and Gloria on a dark, clear night at Copper Road to discover how these friends find happiness through sorority redemption, relationship forgiveness, and best friend intervention as you savor the sweet taste of sisterhood."

What I liked about the novel....

"The Sweet Taste of Sisterhood" was about sorority sisters and was a very interesting read that once you start the reader will find it hard to put down until the end. There was a lots going on this this Kappa Alpha Rho adventure starring Kiara, Gloria and Donna.

These characters are so different from me, but the writing is so good. I never even considered pledging to a sorority and seriously doubt it would have worked for me, but I can see where it can be a bond that folks will lean on for life. I'm glad she didn't try to make like every single person in the sorority was going to become as close as these three, but that's part of what worked for me about this book. It is particular, not general, and each of these people grows and changes in themselves and in their relationship to each other. Though the sorority bond is what they talk about, it seems like the bow on top of their deeper interest in and reliance on each other, something any friends can create with one another. The way the book continued past college surprised me, but then satisfied me - it was a good choice.

La Toya Hankins does the unthinkable and surpasses up her semi-autobiographical novel with K-Rho, a novel that chronicle’s the life of three women pledging to be members of the illustrious Kappa Alpha Rho. I found the characters to be well developed and realistic. The incidents described in this novel had me reminiscing of my undergrad years and the experiences I encountered. The fact that these girls, who met unsure of each other, became lifelong confidantes is admirable. La Toya Hankins undoubtedly demonstrates her gift of recounting the saliency of the college experience through her use of vivid details and relevant experiences most college students have encountered. When my line sister read the novel she had inquired if I had revealed some of our freshman tales to the author!

While my initiation process differed to the ones recounted by the protagonist Kiara, it was beneficial to me to really evaluate the definition of hazing. Is hazing limited to receiving “wood” or is it an unnecessary series of events one has to encounter to be considered a “Sister”. Either way the sorority aspect was what drew me in but the strength and character flaws of the three women was what kept me. I found myself wondering if K-Rho was what made these three women sisters or if they would have been close otherwise. The series of events that really tested their allegiance to one another made me conclude that K-Rho served as a temporary sealant until the friendship fostered to cement their relationship.

Having experience sorority life I enjoyed reading the lives of the women portrayed. I appreciated their sisterhood and their bond. Beautifully written of friendship which of course with drama. I was able to relate to the lives of each sister's events as the author brought a unique perspective to each woman. I shook my head, laughed and cried. Even if the reader is not in a sorority I believe, if the truth be told, every woman would be able to relate to, if not in their life but perhaps in the lives of other people they love or care for. In spite of the paths each woman took their still remained the celebration of sisterhood.
