When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade--a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up--the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

"From the Hardcover edition."

    Comments about The Maze Runner:

    Definitely a great book to read wether your lounging around or looking for something different.
    Its different form the normal book types and its nice to see something different.
    Slow starts though can be a pain but once your past it its easy to get trapped inside.

        Good story that kept me interested, the use of different words for what i imagine was swear words to shelter younger readers maybe? Was a little hard to understand but it didn't take away from the story.
