When Thomas wakes up, he''s surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don''t know why or how they got there. The next day, a girl arrives with a surprising message.
From the Publisher:
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.


From the Hardcover edition.
Annotation:
This fast-paced fantasy filled with monsters, puzzles, and mystery opens as Thomas wakes up in a lift, with no memory. He soon discovers that he has been delivered to the Glade, a challenging world filled with boys desperate to escape. They feverishly explore a giant maze that is thought to be the key to their freedom, but avoid it at night, when it fills with dangerous, but fascinating creatures called the Grievers. Having created a rule-bound culture to maintain order, the boys are sure the maze is key to their freedom. But when a girl unexpectedly arrives, everything is thrown into panic as she seems to be a harbinger of disaster. The first in a deeply compelling series.
