Girls on Fire by Robin WassermanOn Halloween, 1991, a popular high school basketball star ventures into the woods near Battle Creek, Pennsylvania, and disappears. Three days later, he’s found with a bullet in his head and a gun in his hand—a discovery that sends tremors through this conservative community, already unnerved by growing rumors of Satanic worship in the region.
In the wake of this incident, bright but lonely Hannah Dexter is befriended by Lacey Champlain, a dark-eyed, Cobain-worshiping bad influence in lip gloss and Doc Martens. The charismatic, seductive Lacey forges a fast, intimate bond with the impressionable Dex, making her over in her own image and unleashing a fierce defiance that neither girl expected. But as Lacey gradually lures Dex away from her safe life into a feverish spiral of obsession, rebellion, and ever greater risk, an unwelcome figure appears on the horizon—and Lacey’s secret history collides with Dex’s worst nightmare.
By turns a shocking story of love and violence and an addictive portrait of the intoxication of female friendship, set against the unsettled backdrop of a town gripped by moral panic, Girls on Fire is an unflinching and unforgettable snapshot of girlhood: girls lost and found, girls strong and weak, girls who burn bright and brighter—and some who flicker away.

I think the song is about that she is doing great and even though her past wasn't the best she's on top now. Also that nobody can bring her down no matter what they say it can't and won't. When she says this girl is on fire shes saying I'm doing great and achieving my dreams, and I don't care what you think. Keys introduce a girl in the very first line of the song. In the final verse this answer is revelled. This adds a realistic touch to the song aside from her heavenly.
The song contains an interpolation of the drums from the song " The Big Beat " by American rock guitarist Billy Squier , who received a writing credit on "Girl on Fire".

E mancipation narratives are all-pervasive in female pop. Often, though, a lot of hot air about "breaking free" or "finding oneself as a woman" doesn't mean the singer, after years of smiley servitude, has emasculated her handlers with pinking shears, torched the recording studio and hit the road with all the cash in the kitty and her tutu aflame. It just tends to signal a new stylist. Similarly, a lot of fuss about "rebirth" usually means a change of labels or the pitter-patter of tiny Louboutins. Listeners with long memories could be forgiven for raising an eyebrow at the phoenix-like rising mooted by Alicia Keys's latest album, Girl on Fire , her fifth.
