it was amazing

Oooh, I remember EXACTLY how I found out about The Maze Runner! Let me summarize...

Yes, my teacher was reading it to us. I thought this was a very cool story, kids trapped in a maze full of monsters??? I never heard THAT in a story.

I was pulled into a series of drawing fan art(which I might post one day, but who knows, I might want to keep it a secret...) and buying the WHOLE trilogy.

Our teacher also read The Scorch Trials, but he never got to The Death Cure or The Kill Order.

A sixteen year old boy has no memories of his past, all he knows is his name, which is Thomas. He is cast into the Glade and the world of hard working Gladers, who are all boys. He makes friends instantly, the funny chatterbox 12 year Chuck, the smart aleck Asian runner Minho, and the calm and contented Newt.

But then something happens that has never happened before. A GIRL, whom her name is Teresa, comes into the Glade with a message SHE'S THE LAST ONE. EVER.

Suddenly, the Gladers are thrown into trouble. More and more troubles appear by the second. Soon, they forced into a desicion, leave the Maze or die.

But how? No one's found the exit for two years! But Thomas thinks he has the answer and sometimes the truth ISN'T pretty...

Join Thomas and his friends in a battle for justice and truth. There will be sacrifices, deaths and heart wrenching lies. But they will hold on...

...but want if what is OUTSIDE of the Maze is WORSE than what they already have?...

Five stars for creativity, Dashner. As I said, never heard of ANY OTHER BOOK with a bunch of teens trapped in a maze full of murderous monsters.

Just sayin' ;)

“Shouldn't someone give a pep talk or something?" Minho asked, pulling Thomas's attention away from Alby.
"Go ahead," Newt replied.
Minho nodded and faced the crowd. "Be careful," he said dryly. "Don't die.”
