The Maze Runner

By: James Dashner

Life in the Glade is dangerous but orderly. Every night, the Glade's walls close, protecting residents from the creatures outside. Every thirty days, a metal elevator in the courtyard delivers a new, always disoriented, adolescent boy. But, one day, it delivers a girl-and then the walls stop closing.
