The Maze Runner Trilogy
James Dashner's fast-paced Maze Runner trilogy, is set in a dark, violent post-apocalyptic world where government "scientists" isolate teens in the Killzone, wipe their memories clean, and hold them captive like animals in a bizarre experiment. The teens are put through horrific trials, supposedly to help save humanity, and some are killed by the adults. It's grim stuff, but readers will find a strong role model in Thomas, a teen who doesn't give up his own sense of what's right and is capable of leading a revolt against the evil adult captors.
