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!

          My first review was gong to be The Maze Runner. It has been on my TBR pile since I listened to a review on the Books on the Nightstand Podcast. It has sat there for months, until one day the 5th grade teacher in my school came to me (maybe its the thousands of books displayed in my room) to get another book. I handed him a pile and he chose Maze Runner. He read it in a couple days and could not stop telling me how much he loved it. Nothing like an excited reader to convince you to read a book. I was not disappointed. It was fantastic. I could go on and on, but while I was blog hopping on my friend and coworker's blog I found this high school student who did a much better job then I could ever do. Read Lulu's review of The Maze Runner. Now go read the book!
