交織著愛與暴力的故事,以及女性情誼的醉人畫像,發生在對敗德恐慌的小鎮中, Girls on Fire是一幀對少女時代堅定且難忘的快照:失而復得的少女、堅強又脆弱的少女、燃燒地越來越亮、而其中有人在閃爍中消失於無形的少女們。
在這個事件之後,聰明但孤單的Hannah Dexter與Lacy Champlain交上了朋友,因為她們有共同討厭的對象 - 那個籃球選手的女友、金髮的Nikki Drummond,Nikki時常嘲弄Hannah,而讓她痛苦難言。
Lacy是個黑眼珠的女孩,從她的亮色唇膏和馬汀大夫鞋當中,反映出她對超脫樂團主唱、受人爭議、最後自殺身亡的Kurt Cobain的崇拜。這個有魔魅誘惑力的Lacey很快地與敏感的Hannah之間產生了非常親密的關係,Lacey將Hannah打扮成自己的樣子,從中釋放出的激烈反叛是兩個女孩沒有預期的。當Lacey慢慢地誘惑好女孩Hannah成為Dex,將Dex從安全的生活中拉進迷戀、反抗與更大的危險中時,一個不受歡迎的人物出現了,Lacey過去的秘密與Dex最大的夢魘終於碰撞在一起…。
This is not a story of bad things happening to bad girls. I say this because I know you, Dex, and I know how you think. I'm going to tell you a story, and this time, it will be the truth.

Hannah Dexter is a nobody, ridiculed at school by golden girl Nikki Drummond and bored at home. But in their junior year of high school, Nikki's boyfriend walks into the woods and shoots himself. In the wake of the suicide, Hannah finds herself befriending new girl Lacey and soon the pair are inseparable, bonded by their shared hatred of Nikki. Lacey transforms good girl Hannah into Dex, a Doc Marten and Kurt Cobain fan, who is up for any challenge Lacey throws at her. The two girls bring their combined wills to bear on the community in which they live; unconcerned by the mounting discomfort that their lust for chaos and rebellion causes the inhabitants of their parochial small town, they think they are invulnerable.

But Lacey has a secret, about life before her better half, and it's a secret that will change everything . . .

Starting - and ending - with tragedy, Girls on Fire stands alongside The Virgin Suicides in its brilliant portrayal of female adolescence, but with a power and assurance all its own.
