What if you found yourself in a strange place, not knowing your name or anything about your past? That’s what happened to Thomas. He woke up in an elevator, and when the doors opened he was greeted by a group of boys his age in the middle of a giant maze. These boys had already been searching for a way out, sending out the strongest to run the maze, but were unable to find an exit. Picking up clues and encountering vicious monsters, Thomas and the boys’ search becomes more frantic as they try to find out why they are in the maze, who they were before they got there, and what has happened to the rest of the world. Will they find there way through? Will the monsters that guard the maze catch them? What if you woke up one day and found yourself as the next Maze Runner?
