The Maze Runner by James Dashner
From the website:
This looks to be really great and I am hoping to share it with my older son as well as read it myself. It is also the start of a trilogy and I am a real sucker for trilogies/series.
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.
I am really excited to read this and hope to have an interview with the author up later this month along with a giveaway.
