The Maze Runner
by James Dashner

Sixteen year old Thomas emerges from a dark elevator into a fortress-like world remembering nothing more than his name. He and the other boys in the Glade live in a community where everyone has a place and a job. One of the jobs is that of the maze runner: boys who daily run around the maze outside of the fortress, desperately trying to find a way out. At night the boys must return to the Glade to escape the large, slug-like, deadly Grievers. The well ordered world of the boys takes a turn when, for the first time, a girl is delivered in the elevator with a message of change. Will the boys finally escape the maze?
