Pajama Party: The Story
By E. C. Jackson
YA Christian Contemporary
Paperback & ebook, 213 Pages
August 26th 2017 by E. C. Jackson

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.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

Karen Duncan decides she’s going to have a pajama party and invite friends that don’t normally hang out together. But was this a disaster about to happen?

Nine girls, one Pajama Party, and one long night, makes for and interesting story. As you can imagine nine girls getting together, there had to be friction! As the girls began to arrive at Karen’s house, they began to bicker and complain about who would be at the party, and who likes who and anything else girls this age can complain about. And it gets pretty nasty at times. But as the night wore on, the girls were able to come together and talk more freely. As they talked about issues they were having with family, boyfriends, school, and other things in their mind, things seemed to calm down, and they learned things about each other they didn’t know. A few of the girls were Christians, the others were not, but by the end of the night their talk about not God and Faith changed some of the girls minds as well.

If you have a teenage girl, this book would be a great read for her. Though it’s a great read for any age, teenage girls will be able to relate to what is going on with this crowd! The book is fun, entertaining, and just what you think it would be with this many girls in one house together! The characters are realistic, I felt as though I was in that house with them! I want to encourage you to check out this book for yourself, as well as any teenage girl you may know.
