Girls on Fire

Set in the small-town early 1990s—the moment of volcanic teenage revolution presided over by the tortured prince Kurt Cobain—Girls on Fire stalks the treacherous territory between girlhood and adulthood, through the story of two love triangles gone violently wrong. In the tradition of The Virgin Suicides and Heathers, Girls on Fire is both a thriller and a portrait of the intoxication of girlhood and female friendship—an unflinching and unforgettable portrait of good girls, bad girls, lost and found girls, strong and weak girls, girls who burn bright and brighter, and some who flicker away: girls on fire.
