The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Thomas is the most recent arrival to the Glade from the Box. Like all Gladers before him, he arrives devoid of memories with only a first name. Once he arrives, strange things begin happening and the Gladers become suspicious. The day after Thomas's arrival, a girl shows up in the Box. Teresa is the first girl to show up in the Maze and she somehow has triggered The End. Things seem vaguely familiar to Thomas, but will he be able to solve the puzzle of the Maze?
The Maze Runner was a page-turner from the start. I always find it amazing how people think up these kinds of things. I was intrigued and did not want to put this book down. I was unaware when choosing this book to read that it was part of a trilogy, now I'm looking forward to reading The Scorch Trials.
