I found a story I wrote when I was 11.
It is amazing. I am just about dead from laughing. It's called "A New Life for Me," about a 12-yr-old girl named Edith Collins. In the span of one day, she:
learns her family is moving to NYC
is thrown a goodbye/birthday party, in which her friends gift her with large amounts of money
legally changes her name to Denise
flies to NYC
departs the plane moments before it explodes, killing everyone else onboard
meets a whole new crowd of kids her age
is asked out on dates by every boy she meets
For your enjoyment, here are 5 HILARIOUS pages from the 60-page story. You'll note that by the second page I got sick of 3rd person and switched to 1st. Also note the 5-minute move on page 4, and the highly accurate depiction of her plane ride on page 5.
