Set in a dystopian world, The Maze Runner, written by James Dashner, centers around a group of teen boys (and a girl) stuck in a maze, trying to get out. They have no idea why they are there, or how they got there. In fact, they don't have any memories of the outside world. The protagonist, Thomas, arrives in the Maze, and as soon as he does, strange things start to happen. Thomas bands everyone together to try and get out. There is really no specific antagonist in this book, but an organization named WICKED that is doing something not good with the gladers (people in the maze). All together, this is a really good book in my opinion, the writing is well done, the setting is interesting, the plot always leaves me wanting to read on, and the characters are very interesting and are well developed. It's a generally fun book to read, and I highly recommend it to everyone.
