Singer Alicia Keys is all set to release a graphic novel titled "Girl on Fire" in March next year, which will be based on her hit 2012 single of the same name.

Keys shared that the book will tell the story of a 14-year-old girl named Lolo Wright, who discovers she has "telekinetic powers she never knew she had while protecting her brother from a policeman who pulls a gun on him in a dangerous case of mistaken identities", reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The book will be released alongside HarperCollins Publishers and co-author Andrew Weiner, and it is illustrated by Brittney Williams. wikimedia



In a statement, Keys said: "I wrote 'Girl On Fire', I knew I was writing it for that girl in the back row who needed someone to tell her there's nothing you can't do, that nothing is impossible.

"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."

The 'My boo' hitmaker 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."

The book will be released alongside HarperCollins Publishers and co-author Andrew Weiner, and it is illustrated by Brittney Williams. The upcoming release will be the second book by Keys, after she also released a memoir titled aMore Myself: A Journey' last year.

The circulating avian influenza outbreaks, including in India, do not seem to pose the 'high' risk but surveillance and biosecurity measures are necessary to reduce spillover risk between poultry and wild birds, a UN-backed scientific task force said. Throughout the past autumn and current winter in the northern hemisphere, multiple avian influenza outbreaks, caused predominantly by the H5N1 HPAI virus, plus other subtypes, including H5N8, have occurred in India, the UK, the Netherlands and Israel with the ever recorded mortality of the Svalbard barnacle geese in Solway Coast.
