This book was about a 16 year-old teenager named Thomas. The book starts off uniquely with Thomas sitting in the corner of a box, alone, scared, and confused. Then the box comes to an abrupt halt and Thomas is introduced to the life of a "Glader." People explain to him that they have a maze surrounding "the Glade" (where Thomas is living) and that for two years then have attempted to solve the maze but have not yet succeeded. For some reason, a few people despise him even though he has done no harm to them. But when he finally thinks he has settled in, people referred to as "Maze Runners" come running in from the entrances to the maze and they somehow seem familair. The next day, a girl came in from the box. This was unheard of because they only received a new Glader every month and their was never a girl. After she arrives the book takes you on an adventure that, personally, was truly amazing. Thomas discovers new terrible things and has th e Gladers future in his hands. The author came up with fantastic creative ideas and I reccommend this book to everyone.
