Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by  Breaking The Spine. It showcases new books that are coming out that we can't wait to read!

I've been eyeing this one for a while:

Title: Wildefire
Author: Karsten Knight
Publication Date: July 26, 2011
Find it on Amazon
Find it on Goodreads

Description from Goodreads:
Ashline Wilde never received an instruction manual on how to be a 16-year-old Polynesian volcano goddess. If she had, it might have contained helpful warnings such as:

• Dreaming about your (thankfully) mortal boyfriend may cause your bed to spontaneously combust
• Oven mitts should be worn at all times.

Instead, Ash has to learn these life lessons the hard way as her dormant powers erupt at the most awkward times. In the wake of a hometown tragedy, Ash transfers to Blackwood Academy, a boarding school nestled in California’s redwoods, where a group of fellow gods-on-earth have mysteriously convened. As if sophomore year couldn’t get any worse, her storm goddess older sister, the wild and unpredictable Eve, resurfaces to haunt Ashline. With a war between the gods looming over Blackwood, Ash must master the fire smoldering within her before she clashes with her sister one final time, which leads us to life-lesson #3:

• When warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

A Polynesian volcano goddess?? Yes, please!  I love this fresh, new idea for a story. The cover is amazing as well. I have to have this book!
