Description
After witnessing all sorts of violence, Stephanie decides to "light her candle." After encountering much opposition, with the help of her two friends, they transform their inner city school and neighborhood.

Witnessing the deterioration of her inner-city neighborhood, Stephanie decides to "light her candle" to help clean up the trash and stop the violence. After convincing her two friends to do as much good as they can for one week, Stephanie and her friends, with the help of parents, end up transforming their inner-city school and neighborhood from a place of violence and deterioration to a model of order and cleanliness.

Carl Sommer shows that in spite of many obstacles, one person's determination and desire to do well can transform a whole area. This inspiring story teaches the importance of citizenship, caring for others, and community service.
