The book starts with the main character, Thomas, waking up in the glade, the center of a maze. So far there is no known way out and the gladers, the other people in the maze including Thomas, have no memories except their names. Then, a bit after Thomas show up, a girl show up in the glade with a note saying, "She's the last one." Thomas had his mind set on getting out, the only problem were the monsters in the maze, the grievers. Pretty quick he learned that getting out was going to be a lot more difficult than he thought. I leave how he and other gladers got out for you all to find out from reading the book.
I would recommend this book to all of you. It is a wonderful book and I highly suggest that some of you read this book. If you like danger and adventure than this is the book for you. If not then still read it.
Literary Praise - "Dashner knows how to spin a tale and make the unbelievable realistic. Hard to put down, this is clearly just a first installment, and it will leave readers dying to find out what comes next." - Kirkus Reviews
