An NPR Best Book of the Year • A Buzzfeed Best Book of the Year 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.

Ana's novel, "Girl On Fire," is the tale of one woman's trek through the trenches of sexual violation and misbegotten love to a surprising, redemptive romance with herself. It's based on her own life, when recovered memories of profound abuse and violence in childhood resurfaced, following an accident and a near death experience. For seven years, she went into seclusion to dive inwards and to fully embrace the pain of her past in a way she couldn't when it actually happened. Through deep meditation and with the guidance of a wise mentor, she eventually came to feel not just forgiveness, not just compassion, but real love for each of the perpetrators - and perhaps the most difficult journey of all - for herself. She wrote a novel instead of a memoir because several of the characters involved are still living. "Girl On Fire" alternates between the perspectives of young Eily Massey and her father, Eamon, in 1960's Ireland. Ana wanted to show both viewpoints, to articulate the humanness and woundedness of victim and perpetrator, who are really both victims of their own pain. A message of unearthing love from the ashes of sexual trauma is badly needed, in fact, is an imperative, both for those who don't understand it and for those who still feel trapped in the prison of their past. "Girl On Fire" is a dark fairy tale but like all fairy tales, it has a supremely happy ending. And Ana Ramana is living proof: completely healed, whole and grateful for the entire experience. She is also grateful for the opportunity to finally transmute the wound into art.

She announced herself to the world at a young age in The Burning Plain and Winter's Bone, gripping dramas set in America's deprived heartland. Ironic, then, that such a gifted character actress become a household name through two of the biggest fantasy roles in the business: the shapeshifting assassin Mystique from the X-Men series and the gutsy, warlike heroine of the Hunger Games trilogy, Katniss Everdeen--the Girl on Fire. As Katniss and Mystique, she owns the screen, oozing grace, attitude, and menace, redefining the roles of women in action films--this girl doesn't need saving by anyone. But Jennifer couldn't be more different off-screen. Always ready with a smile or a quip about embarrassing everyday struggles, she is loved by fans for being a genuinely relatable personality. And make no mistake: she has had every reason to lose her sunny disposition. She struggled early on in her career with a hurtful "fat actress" label in spite of her healthy body type, and suffered public heartbreak with the likes of Coldplay's Chris Martin. In 2014, when she suffered the ultimate indignity of having private photos leaked onto the internet for all to see, she emerged with her head held high. This is the first biography of an Academy Award winner, a star of our screens for years to come, and a role model for girls and young women everywhere.

"It's not a matter of if you'll get burned-it's when, and how bad." Summer Kayes is used to pain. She lived with it every day during high school, when her peers tormented her. She felt it in the rejection of her dance coach, who made it clear she didn't fit the beautiful-ballerina mold, and in the blade she pressed to her wrist one fateful night, ready to end it all . . . Five years older, more grounded, and driven by a desire to feel beautiful, Summer ventures into a piercing parlor and crosses paths with the couple who will change her life: beautiful, bold, confident Rhiannon and relentless flirt Adrian. As the two women become friends, Rhiannon invites Summer into the world of tribal belly dance, an open, accepting community of artists who celebrate and support one another. Summer immerses herself in the culture of the dark and lovely fire arts, where the dance is as dangerous as it is stunning. Together with Rhiannon, Adrian, and her new tribe mates-brash Morgan, sultry Rosie, and enigmatic Phoenix-Summer forms a fire-performance troupe, and the friends take the Cincinnati underground dance stage by storm. But along with blazes of triumph also come searing hurts, as Summer's new peace is endangered by temptations and betrayals, and the hatred she endured as a teen casts its shadow over her once again. Even if all she has built is reduced to ash, can Summer protect the fire within herself? The overriding theme of "Girl on Fire" is a timeless one of tested and growing friendships and a building of self-confidence that is audacious in the most admirable way, as a troubled girl becomes a confident fire eater who blooms through spinning fire poi, learning tribal belly dance, and more. The extraordinary details will speak strongly to those who are curious about a world they may never have known existed, until now.
