If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run.

Review: I put this book off for too long. This story was great and unique, a really delight to read. We are thrown into a strange dystopian world, where the maze is the only thing that matters. Along with the unusual story, we have some pretty fantastic characters. My favorite is Galley, the exacerbator of the whole series. I always love a character who thinks he is doing the right thing, but is doing it all wrong. Galley has the right intentions, poor guy. We see him throughout the whole series. Of course, we follow Thomas, who runs into a moral dilemma. He's lost his memory, but through out the process, he regains bits and pieces of who he was. Its an awesome awakening. 

Loved this book and would definitely recommend it to dystopian lovers.
