The maze runner

Thomas is a boy whose life begins again when he wakes up in a metal box with no memory of
who he is or anything about his past. He only knows his name. Awakening in the Glade, a
space supplied with everything needed to survive and protected by walls that lead into the
Maze, Thomas begins his new life in a community shared by other boys whose everyday goal
is to enter the Maze and try to find an exit from this confinement. The walls open every day
and make a portal that leads into the Maze, a labyrinth of walls filled with creatures called
Grievers. The runners try to stay alive and solve the Maze by running through it as fast as they
can while tracking movements of the walls, maping them and trying to find an exit. Thomas
figures out that walls don't move randomly and that their movement is actually a code and that
the Maze is spelling out words. Thomas also discovers that the Cliff that they all thought was
just a cliff turns out to be where the Grievers are coming from. Desperately wanting to get his
memory back, Thomas gets himself stung by a Griever in the Maze and discovers the Griever
Hole is indeed an exit. Not only that, the code that the Maze has been spelling out is their exit.
A group of them decide to make a run for it, knowing that they might get killed trying to
escape. They succeed, only to find out that everything in the Glade is an experiment being
created and conducted by a group called WICKED.
