Wildefire by Karsten Knight
Ashline and her older sister Eve are adopted. When Eve left, Ashline was the only Polynesian student in are almost all White school. After an incident on a roof, Ashline is forced to go to private school in another state to start over.
Ashline's new life is interrupted when she's one of only five people to hear a girl scream for help. The five soon learn they are gods and goddesses who are always reborn as human. There's a war coming, Eve comes back forcing the five to pick a side.
The story moves at a great pace. I really liked the characters and their relationships. The five have good chemistry with the right amount of tension. The dialogue is as sharp as the action. This was some serious page turning fun. Loved it and the diverse cast. Knight started with a strong foundation for this series. A favorite debut of 2011.
