Just because I'm lazy, here's the description from Goodreads:
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 thirty 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...
This book was AWESOME. The plot, the characters, the writing style - all amazing.
Seriously though, this book deserves a fandom.
The Maze Runner is an action packed book that will leave you yearning to read the sequel. There wasn't a moment reading it that I was bored or skipped ahead. Every page kept me sucked in.There were some parts that were dark and depressing, but for a story like this it's necessary. I enjoyed the fact that is is written in a boy's perspective and that most of the characters are boys (with one exception to the girl that shows up after Thomas). The plot is unlike any story I've read, which is most likely a reason why it's so interesting. A lot of books today are unoriginal and dull. The Maze Runner is in no means anywhere close to unoriginal or dull.
I recommend this book to those seeking a late-nighter and who want to be sucked in completely by a tale of suspense and adventure.

AND it's being made into a movie!
No official trailer yet, but it doesn't come out until sometime next year.
