This book was AMAZING! After reading the first book (Maze Runner), I couldn't get enough. This book was about the second "trial" in the series: surviving the terrible disease that was beginning to take hold and hopefully find the cure to it. In order to do this, the remaining Gladers are sent out into the Scorch, a seemingly abandoned city surrounded by desert and mountains, and must stick together to survive. As they struggle to complete this task, the Gladers are also challenged with betrayal and mystery. Thomas still struggles with his romance from the maze.
The Scorch Trials is a very good book if you are into sci-fi/futuristic/struggling against society type things. Although there is some romance, it is mostly action-packed so I would recommend it to boys and girls. You should really read it ;)
