Thomas wakes up in an elevator, with no memories other than that of his name. When the elevator reaches the surface, he finds out about the Glade, a place that is like Earth. At one end of the Glade is a maze, which is rumored to have a way out of the Glade and back to the real world. When one day, a girl comes into the Glade with a threat in the elevator with her, the urgency to find this exit becomes a matter of life and death for the Glade’s residents.
This book is similar to the Hunger Games series, in that the theme is survival. It starts off a bit slow, but begins becoming more and more faster paced as the book goes on. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a sci-fi book to read.
