Waiting on Wednesday – Steel by Carrie Vaughn

“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about
(created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

When Jill, a competitive high school fencer, goes with her family on vacation to the Bahamas, she is magically transported to an early eighteenth century pirate ship in the middle of the ocean.

Not much about it on goodreads, but I love the cover. And I love pirates, so I’ll definitely be looking forward to this one!

Steel will be released on March 1st, 2011 from HarperTeen.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
