In My Mailbox #3

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren 
sharing what books we have either received, bought or from the library.

I just got one book this week...and it's from *sob* Borders. D: It's just to sad. But anyways I got Wildfire by Karsten Knight for like $12. *Sigh*

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.
This book has and is being talked about all over the blogging community so I decided what the heck I might as well read it because it does involve mythology. Another awesome thing is the main characters name Ashline, my name is Ashlinn so  we have very similar names, but what I'm wondering is her name pronounced Ash-Leen or Ash-Lynn like mine?Anyone know?

Sounds good! I'm not that sure how to say Ashline. Maybe someone else will, though. My IMM is here :)
