Book one in the blockbuster Maze Runner series that spawned a movie franchise and ushered in a worldwide phenomenon! And don’t miss The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated series conclusion that finally reveals the story of how the maze was built!

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.
Outside the towering stone walls that surround them is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.
Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying: Remember. Survive. Run.

The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials are now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. The third movie, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, will hit screens in 2018.

Also look for James Dashner’s edge-of-your-seat MORTALITY DOCTRINE series!

      Thomas is the newbie, the one who's looked down upon, until he saves Minho and the leader of the place. So why are there strange things happening? Why is there a girl named Teresa there? And why do the Greviers want to kill so badly? How bad is the Changing? Since I don't want to spoil it, I'll leave ALLLL the questions unanswered, unless you want to read it...

            So interesting, the characters. They get in a box, come out lose their memory get confused make up some new words... And the walls close every night... One day a new boy came. All he remembered that his name was Thomas. Every month, or thirty days, a new person comes. A boy. Not a girl ever. But one day, the next day after Thomas came, a girl. I know what I am saying is confusing, but please read the book !!!!!!!!!
