On Tour with Prism Book Tours
Book Tour Launch for
Pajama Party: The Story
By E. C. Jackson
Note from the Author
Food, Fun and Pillow Fights! Welcome to the book tour for my first YA book.
Pajama Party: The Story is the companion book to A Living Hope. The main character of A Living Hope, Sadie Cummings, wrote this book for the girls of Shiatown. After the book was published, she quickly adapted the story into a play. In Sadie’s story, she fought for a chance to restore broken dreams and dealt with the reality of missed chances and bad decisions. Interaction with the nine girls in the drama provided insight into her own teen and college years.
Each girl held solid convictions about herself. Strong personalities prevailed within the group at large. During rehearsals, Sadie observed them through times of happiness and when they were hurting. However, her opinions about their character fluctuated on any given day. One fact never changed: Individuals who appeared to be followers were selective in who they followed. It seemed they never followed anyone to places they had no wish to go or engaged in events they had no wish to join.
But why? Their motivations highlight the story.
Pajama Party is adapted from a play I wrote many years ago. I hope you enjoy the peek inside the lives of nine girls who stole my heart. My prayer is that they steal your heart as well.

Most sleepovers are simple. Food, fun, and pillow fights. But sixteen-year-old Karen Duncan has bigger plans for her slumber party. Family troubles have changed her over the past year, and she’s no longer the petty, selfish girl she used to be. Now she’s ready to shake things up with her friends. The guest list comes as a surprise to some and a slap in the face to others. This popular girl has invited some not-so-popular guests. Even more shocking, she’s left out some of the girls she’s hung out with since middle school.
Diane and Evette are outsiders, nervous about being stuck in a house with the same girls who tease them at school. Kathy, Lisa, and Joann come to the party with the confidence of the in-crowd, but they’re masking inner-turmoil that is bound to surface. Sandy and Angela are usually the voices of reason…usually. And then there’s Linda, the friend that got away. She may not ever forgive the girls who abandoned her years ago. Karen hopes to change her mind.
Her agenda is ambitious, and it could spell disaster. But Karen is convinced God will use this party to spark a new beginning for everyone involved. This companion book to A Living Hope gives us the inspired story Sadie Cummings wrote for the girls of Shiatown.
