THE MAZE RUNNER, by James Dashner (Delacorte Press 2009)(12+). Sixteen year old Thomas wakes up without a memory and in a "lift" in the center of the Glade, an open area surrounded on all sides by walls that lead to a Maze that changes every night. And you don't want to be caught out there at night. Once a month, a new boy is delivered into the Glade, where the Gladers have formed their own society and are seeking answers to the mysteries of why they're there.
But after Thomas arrives, everything changes: the next day, a girl is delivered. And food deliveries stop...Can they solve the mystery of the maze and make it home? Or will they be trapped there forever?
THE MAZE RUNNER is an exciting, suspenseful, thrill-ride with an intriguing "world" that's more than meets the eye. Readers will be eagerly awaiting the next installment.
