Alicia Keys adapts ‘Girl On Fire’ into young adult novel

NEW YORK – For Alicia Keys, “Girl On Fire” is not just a million-selling single, but the title and inspiration for a younger adult graphic novel scheduled for upcoming calendar year.

HarperCollins Publishers announced Tuesday that “Girl On Fireplace,” the story of 14-calendar year-outdated Lolo Wright and her telekinetic powers, will arrive out March 1. The ebook is cowritten by Andrew Weiner and illustrated by Brittney Williams.

“When I wrote ‘Girl On Fire,’ I realized I was crafting it for that woman in the way back again row who desired someone to convey to her there is almost nothing you can’t do, that very little is impossible,” Keys said in a assertion. “When Andrew and I arrived up with the strategy of translating the track into a young adult graphic novel, I knew that I required it to be about a female coming to notice the strength she’s usually experienced. There’s a tiny Lolo in all of us — we all have the power inside of to do what we hardly ever even believed we could — and I’m so happy and mad excited to be equipped to share her story with you. You’re heading to tumble in love with Lolo.”
