She’s making herstory once again with the illustrated Girl on Fire.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“When I wrote Girl On Fire, I knew I was writing it for that girl in the way-back row who needed someone to tell her there’s nothing you can’t do, that nothing is impossible.” — Alicia
You read that correctly — from top of the charts to the top of your reading list, Alicia’s hit song “Girl on Fire” is now a coming-of-age graphic novel celebrating the beauty and brilliance of girls discovering their true power.
Girl On Fire — co-written by Andrew Weiner, founder and CEO of Inner Station, and illustrated by Chicago-based artist Brittney Leeanne Williams — centers Lolo Wright, a young girl from Brooklyn who discovers she has telekinetic gifts. (It’s a story for all us who have superpowers that are yet to be revealed.)
Alicia’s no stranger to publishing with Tears for Water: Poetry & Lyrics and More Myself: A Journey under her belt, but Girl On Fire is Alicia’s first-ever graphic novel focused on young adulthood. It’s a good thing our goddess-in-chief is a total pro at stepping up her game and stepping out of her comfort zone to go beyond any limits. (It’s a superpower we love to see).
Be sure to mark your calendar because Girl On Fire is set to release on March 1, 2022 in partnership with HarperCollins Children’s Books (Trust us, it’s a powerful way to celebrate Women’s History Month, now and for future generations).
