The small Appalachian town of Swan River is of no interest to teen Kate Riordan. She cannot wait to graduate and get out of there. She also wants no part of the town’s fabled wild girls, teen girls who kill with fire.

As she attempts to better herself at the town’s exclusive Swan River Academy, Kate becomes entangled with males and females who may prove to be dangerous. Why, wonders Kate, is it so hard to leave this place unscathed?

Kate’s ambitions, the town’s lore, and the wild girls themselves will drive this plot in an unexpected and interesting way.
