The Maze Runner - James Dashner
The Maze Runner is the first novel in the Maze Runner series. This is a dystopian fantasy with a new twist. Thomas becomes aware as he's riding up in the box. When the box is opened, boys Thomas has never seen before help him out and into the Glade. Thomas has no memories of his past, no knowledge of his present. Thomas is not alone, as all the other boys in the Glade are just as clueless about their past. At least until a griever stings someone and they manage to survive. Then Teresa shows up and everything changes. Running the Maze was never about avoiding grievers, it was about finding a way out. Now it's about survival. This is a great novel with mystery, suspense, and heroics. The ending is a cliff hanger that leaves you wanting more. Very highly recommended.
