Robin Wasserman presents: GIRLS ON FIRE Paperback Release

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 7:00pm

Celebrate the paperback release of Robin Wasserman's acclaimed novel Girls on Fire, with a conversation with Robin Wasserman, Lauren Duca, Ashley C. Ford, Megan Abbott, and Jia Tolentino.

Dark and atmospheric, Girls on Fire is a thrilling take on growing up a girl in a small Pennsylvania town, under the influences of Nirvana and Satanism paranoia.

“Explores the line where close female friendships can blur into obsession and self-obliteration….At the heart of the dark story is an intoxicating and all-consuming friendship between two teenage girls.” -- New York Times

“An enthralling, gritty, and altogether unpredictable read that holds nothing back.... You will be utterly riveted.” -- BuzzFeed

“Like lightning in a bottle, Robin Wasserman’s Girls on Fire captures girlhood friendship in all its shattering intensity. A captivating, terrifying novel, and one you won’t forget.” -- Megan Abbott

Girls on Fire is a dark, propulsive fever-dream of youth and friendship-a piercing vision of what it means to mistake yourself for who you are in someone else’s eyes. I wanted to grab these girls and shake them, sing them lullabies, stop them—but all I could do was keep reading them, relentlessly enthralled by the heat-seeking missile of Robin Wasserman’s fearless imagination.” -- Leslie Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams and The Gin Closet
