A Single Spark

12 year old Christina Hollingsworth is queen of the school. She has a ton of friends and a humungous mansion. She always brags about her huge house and loves how it is so far away from the other homes - "It's soooo private compared to your house Madison!" is just an example. But she comes home one day from a bragging session at school to find her house burned down to the ground. Then comes the worst. The firefighters tell her and her family that the cause of the fire was a curling iron that was left on. And Christina realizes it was her fault. When the family's insurance company goes bankrupt, they are out on the streets. Can Christina get her life back? And can she convince her recently ex-friends to forgive her for everything she has done to put them down?


1. The Best

   I, Christina Hollingsworth, am not perfect.  My past is the most imperfect part of me.  But the past is the past, and everything happens for a reason.  And if it is not a good reason, then, well, deal with it.  There is nothing we can do to change our past.  Our future is what we can control.  You can be who you want to be, and it doesn't matter who you were up till this point.  My story is the perfect example of all this.  I could not change what had happened, or how I had treated other people.  But I could at least try to change my future.  If trying is the best you can do, you have succeeded.  Back then, I was snobby, stuck-up, and self-confident.  Being self-confident isn't a bad thing, but I wasn't humble about anything.  The thing was, I was spoiled.  I come from a very wealthy family.  We had a humungous house that we spent all of our money on.  Well, not all of it.  Just a lot of it.  I had the best clothes, the best house, and the best hair.  My parents had probably spent thousands on special shampoos and conditioners for me, as well as trips to the hair salon five times a month.  So I got extremely spoiled.  No one had ever given me a good lesson on right vs. wrong, so I just said whatever popped into my head and did whatever I wanted to do.  It wasn't really my fault, considering the atmosphere I had been surrounded by for the past 12 years of my life.  But I got a good lesson one day when I arrived home from school.  Now I am going to tell you how one spark changed my life.
