Alicia Keys is set to release a young adult graphic novel inspired by her multi-platinum certified song “Girl on Fire.”
HarperCollins Publishers announced that Girl on Fire, the story of 14-year-old Lolo Wright and her telekinetic powers, will drop on March 1, 2022. The book is co-written by Andrew Weiner and illustrated by Brittney Williams.
“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,” Keys said in a statement. “When Andrew and I came up with the idea of translating the song into a young adult graphic novel, I knew that I wanted it to be about a girl coming to realize the strength she’s always had.”
She added, “There’s a little Lolo in all of us — we all have the power inside to do what we never even thought we could — and I’m so proud and crazy excited to be able to share her story with you. You’re going to fall in love with Lolo.”
Girl on Fire will be Keys’ second book after her memoir titled More Myself: A Journey, which dropped last year.
