Melting Stones by Tamora Pierce

Evvy, a fourteen-year-old stone mage-in-training, has gotten in trouble again. Since she was sold into slavery at the age of six by her mother, she has had to live by her wits and stand up for herself. It is no wonder she is more comfortable among rocks than among humans. Forced to accompany testy green mage Rosethorn and water mage Myrrhtide on a trip to Battle Islands to determine what is poisoning the plants and animals of the islands, Evvy finds herself beginning to care about the fortunes of humans and islands again. With her mentor, Lugo, a talking rock who can command great power, Evvy must make the choice to use her powers to prevent a horrible catastrophe or to become a permanent part of the great pool of rock life.

Another engrossing fantasy from the author of the Circle of Magic and the Song of the Lioness series which will grab your soul.
