I have listed four books for each of you to choose from. Please rate the books listed below in order from one to four (one being most interesting and four being least interesting). You can do so by commenting on this post. I have also added these books to the bookshelf for this group (located to the left of this post, the second one down) if you would like to see what each of the books look like.

The Maze Runner: When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Gladea large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze and every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

The Last Shot: Basketball on the playgrounds of Coney Island represents the only hope of escape from a life of crime, poverty, and despair for young men. In The Last Shot, Darcy Frey chronicles the aspirations of four of the neighborhood's most promising players. But working against them are woefully inadequate schooling, family circumstances that are often desperate, and the slick, brutal world of college athletic recruitment.

Flight #116 is Down: Heidi is caught in a life and death drama when a jumbo jet crashes near her home in the woods of upstate New York. Helping the victims to survive, Heidi faces the most challenging night of her life.

The Princess of Las Pulgas: Carlie, her mother, and her brother must move from their home after the death of their father/husband due to the mounting medical bills. Not only must they leave their home, school, friends, and neighborhood, but they must move to a rough part of town that is the rival of their old school. Carlie is targeted as being standoffish and is criticized for believing she is better than everyone else. Can she ever find a place for herself in this new school?
