Waiting on Wednesday 12






This week I am waiting on:


Wildefire by Karsten Knight
Publisher: Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers
Expected publication date: 26th July 2011

Description from Goodreads:

Every flame begins with a spark. 

Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm

My thoughts:

Private boarding school AND gods and goddesses in one book? Be still my beating heart. This sounds incredible. I'm loving all the mythology themed books coming out at the moment.

Also, you can now read this if you get the S&S galleygrab newsletter. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw it. Twitter went wilde (I know, terrible pun, I'm sorry.)

Leave me your links so I can see what you're waiting on!!

    "Private boarding school AND gods and goddesses in one book? Be still my beating heart." AGREED! You read my mind.
