On Halloween, 1991, a popular high school basketball star
ventures into the woods near Battle Creek, Pennsylvania, and
disappears. Three days later, he’s found with a bullet in
his head and a gun in his hand—a discovery that sends
tremors through this conservative community, already
unnerved by growing rumors of Satanic worship in the region.
In the wake of this incident, bright but lonely Hannah
Dexter is befriended by Lacey Champlain, a dark-eyed,
Cobain-worshiping bad influence in lip gloss and Doc
Martens. The charismatic, seductive Lacey forges a fast,
intimate bond with the impressionable Dex, making her over
in her own image and unleashing a fierce defiance that
neither girl expected. But as Lacey gradually lures Dex away
from her safe life into a feverish spiral of obsession,
rebellion, and ever greater risk, an unwelcome figure
appears on the horizon—and Lacey’s secret history collides
with Dex’s worst nightmare.
By turns a shocking story of love and violence and an
addictive portrait of the intoxication of female friendship,
set against the unsettled backdrop of a town gripped by
moral panic, Girls on Fire is an unflinching and
unforgettable snapshot of girlhood: girls lost and found,
girls strong and weak, girls who burn bright and
brighter—and some who flicker away.
