Waiting On Wednesday (15)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  It's where we share the upcoming releases we're most eagerly anticipating and can't wait to get our hands on! 
This week . . . 

Title:  Light
Series:  A Gone Novel #6
Author:  Michael Grant
Publisher:  Katherine Tegen Books
Pages:  576
Release Date:  April 2nd, 2013  

It’s been more than a year since every person over the age of fourteen disappeared from the town of Perdido Beach, California. In that time, countless battles have been fought: Battles against hunger and lies and plagues and worse, battles of good against evil, and kid against kid. Allegiances have been won, lost, betrayed, and won again; ideologies have been shattered and created anew, and the kids of the FAYZ have begun to believe that their new society is the only life they’ll ever know. But now that the Darkness has found a way to be reborn, the tenuous existence they‘ve established is likely to be shattered for good. Will the kids of Perdido Beach even survive?

Light, the sixth and final book in the New York Times bestselling Gone series (which has spanned more than 3,000 pages!) asks as many profound and provocative questions as it answers, while bestselling mastermind and author Michael Grant creates an unforgettable, arresting conclusion that readers won’t able to stop talking about.
Why I'm Waiting on Light:  This is the last book.  The.  Last.  Book.  It amazes and unsettles me that after this, these character's stories will be finished.  With them, we have experienced so many different hardships and struggles.  I am so emotionally invested in these people (they aren't even really characters for me any more.  They are too real.) that just the thought that this might be coming to an end makes my heart ache.  I've grown to love all of them - even the "bad" ones.  No doubt I will be doing nothing except sobbing and feeling while reading this.  

What are you waiting for this week?
