This is not a novel you'll put down after you pick it up, so clear some time. And it's not a novel you'll ever forget after you've read it-don't say you weren't warned. Wasserman is a brilliant writer, and Girls on Fire is a gorgeous gift of a novel.

-- "Laura Kasischke, Pushcart Prize-winning author of In a Perfect World"

Wasserman combines an audacious coming-of-age tale with dark themes, placing her readers in a world influenced by Kurt Cobain, highly toxic female friendships, and ghastly incidents plaguing a quiet Pennsylvania town. The author's voice is powerful, and her story will linger with readers.

-- "RT Book Reviews "

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, Edgar Award-winning author of Dare Me"

Although YA author Wasserman's adult debut may feature high-school students, it's strictly for more mature readers. The story unfolds as a maddening tease, with shocking events waiting around every corner-and an ending that will leave readers stunned.

-- "Booklist"

A dark, propulsive fever-dream of youth and friendship. 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"

A book so wonderful, so terrible, so nightmarishly compelling that I hardly knew what to say when I finished. Wasserman has wrapped up a love story inside a murder mystery, a promise and a testament inside a confession-and has a title ever been truer? The reader comes away singed.

-- "Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble"
