Can you solve the maze?
When Thomas wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape.

Dylan O'Brien (Thomas) is quickly emerging as one of Hollywood’s brightest talents. Dylan can be seen starring in the MTV television series "Teen Wolf," a reimagining of the 1980’s cult film of the same title. Dylan provides ample comic relief as Stiles, whose best friend Scott McCall is turned into the teen wolf. In summer 2013, Dylan was seen on the big screen alongside Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in the Twentieth Century Fox film The Internship. Directed by Shawn Levy, this comedy tells the story of two down-on-their-luck salesmen who get internships at Google only to find themselves competing for jobs with much younger, tech-savvy interns there. In 2012, Dylan starred opposite Brittany Robertson and Victoria Justice in the feature film The First Time for director Jon Kasdan. The First Time is a romantic comedy in the vein of Say Anything that follows two high school students through the first weekend of their newfound love. The film premiered in competition at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and was released by Sony in Fall 2012. In 2011, Dylan was one of the stars of the entirely improvised independent feature film High Road directed by Upright Citizens Brigade co-founder Matt Walsh and co-starring veteran comedic actors Horatio Sanz, Rob Riggle, Abby Elliott and Lizzy Caplan. Dylan has also developed an extensive YouTube following for a series of comic online shorts, which he directs, produces and stars. Dylan resides in Los Angeles where he shoots "Teen Wolf."
James Dashner was born and raised in Georgia, but now lives in the Rocky Mountains with his family. He has four kids, which some might think is too many but he thinks is just right. Once upon a time, James studied accounting and worked in the field of finance, but has been writing full time for several years. (He doesn’t miss numbers. At all.)
From an early age, James wanted to be a writer. He read every book he could get his hands on, from Superfudge to the Chronicles of Narnia, The Hardy Boys to Lord of the Rings. And telling stories just seemed like the right thing to do. His parents had an old typewriter and he wrote a few stories on that just for fun. All the many books he’s read and all the movies and TV shows he’s watched have served to inspire many of his stories. For example, The Maze Runner was heavily influenced by Ender’s Game and Lord of the Flies.
Whenever James has a tough time writing, he takes a break to watch a movie or read a book, and then the ideas flow so fast he can’t get them all down. He’ll be the first to admit he’s lucky to have the greatest job ever.
James Dashner is the author of the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, the Mortality Doctrine series, the Thirteenth Reality series, and Infinity Ring, Book 1: A Mutiny in Time and Book 7: The Iron Empire. He resides in Utah with his family.
