Waiting on Wednesday: "Voices of Dragons"

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started at Breaking the Spine bookblog, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I usually like to list a few reasons why this book made the top of my 'wish list', but it's purely up to you!
Here's my pick for the week:

Title:Voices of Dragons

Author: Carrie Vaughn
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: March 16, 2010
On one side of the border lies the modern world: the internet, homecoming dances, cell phones. On the other side dwell the ancient monsters who spark humanity’s deepest fears: dragons.
Seventeen-year-old Kay Wyatt knows she’s breaking the law by rock climbing near the border, but she’d rather have an adventure than follow the rules. When the dragon Artegal unexpectedly saves her life, a secret friendship grows between them—even though the fragile truce that has maintained peace between their two species is unraveling around them. As tensions mount and battles begin, Kay and Artegal are caught in the middle. Can their friendship change the course of a war?
In her young adult debut, New York Times bestselling author Carrie Vaughn presents a modern tale of myths and machines and an alliance that crosses a seemingly unbridgeable divide.
**I found the summary on the book's webpage on GoodReads. It's not on B&N or Amazon yet. Also why I didn't link the title. Sorry! The cover is very eye catching, I love it, and the summary sounds great too! :D In other words, it's my kind of book! LOL. Plus, it's release date is 3 days before my B-Day! *Wink, wink*. JK. I know, this is a short post, but I'm still running a bit behind, trying to get caught up, class, work, etc... Well, it even takes a bit of a toll on me. But I promise-- next month I'll be back and better than ever! Well, okay, I'll be back full time at least. Lol. Enjoy! Until Next Time, The Book Queen

I know, right? I mean, really, what's better around your B-Day then new books coming out? :D

Oh, and just so you know, I sent your book out yesterday. If all goes well, it should be there... I'd say no later than Monday or so, but maybe sooner. If you still haven't received it after next week, contact me and I'll try to track down why! :D

Hope you have a good evening as well- and tomorrow. Aren't you glad it's already half way through the week?
