Waiting on Wednesday: Light (Gone #6) by Michael Grant

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  I'm choosing one that comes out next week, and I don't think I've used it yet.  I have loved the Gone series by Michael Grant since I read the first one a few years ago in preparation for possible Gateway Award nominees for that year.  And now, the final book in the series is coming out.  And I can't wait to see how Grant wraps the whole story up.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads.com:  

It's been over a year since all the adults disappeared. Gone.

In the time since everyperson over the age of fourteen disap-peared from the town of Perdido Beach, California, countless battles have been fought: battles against hunger and lies and plague, and epic battles of good against evil. And now, the gaiaphage has been reborn as Diana's malicious mutant daughter, Gaia. Gaia is endlessly hungry for destruction. She yearns to conquer her Nemesis, Little Pete, and then bend the entire world to her warped will. As long-standing enemies become allies, secrets are revealed and unexpected sacrifices are made. Will their attempts to save themselves and one another matter in the end, or will the kids of Perdido Beach perish in this final power struggle?


So, tell me, what book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  1. I've heard so many great things about this series - I have the first book but have yet to read it. I keep forgetting that this newer one is coming out soon too! I must try and get round to reading the series soon. :) Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my WoW. ^.^
    Happy Reading! :)

    1. It is, and reminds me a lot of Under the Dome by Stephen King.
