Eagle Harbor Book Company will host a pajama party book launch for bestselling Bainbridge Island author Suzanne Selfors’ “Wish Upon a Sleepover” Sunday, Sept. 9.

The event is free and open to the public, and will be hosted by Island Treasure Awardee George Shannon.

The story: five misfits, one magical wish.

Leilani dreams of being friends with the most popular girls in her class; the Haileys, who are always throwing awesome themed sleepovers.

She devises a plan to throw her own sleepover and invite them, but when Tutu, her grandmother, accidentally mails Leilani’s invitations to the DO NOT INVITE list the best sleepover in the history of the world becomes the worst.

Instead of the Haileys, the only guests are the three kids Leilani definitely did not want to show up; the neighbor who never speaks, the girl who draws mean pictures of her, and her farting older cousin.

At least her best friend August will be there.

Leilani and her guests decide to make Tutu’s recipe for Sleepover Soup, which requires each of them to collect one ingredient that has significant meaning in their lives. They embark on a scavenger hunt that reveals unexpected surprises. What Leilani finds is not what she wanted — but it might just be even better.

Selfors is a national bestselling author. She’s received four Junior Library Guild awards, appeared on a dozen state lists, and earned starred reviews from Kirkus, School Library Journal and Publishers Weekly.

“The Sasquatch Escape” won the Washington State Book Award for Middle Readers and was one of Amazon’s Best Children’s Books of 2013.
