The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Get ready for the movie by reading the book first! This quick paced and suspenseful story is about a teenage boy, Thomas, who awakens one day with no memory. He discovers, as he emerges from a box, that he has been brought to a bizarre village called the Glade, which is filled with other teen boys who also lack their memories. Everything is deep with mystery, especially the large maze on the border of the Glade. Although Thomas doesn’t know who he is, he knows he is meant to be out in the maze – even if it is riddled with scary monstrous Grievers. The entrance of a girl, Teresa, triggers vague memories in Thomas as he discovers that he has a crucial role to play in his strange predicament…before it’s too late!
