Description: Every month 1 boy is brought up into ‘The Glade’. The Glade is a wide area home to many other boys. It is surrounded by a complex ever-changing maze that is home to monsters at night. One day, Thomas is brought up into The Glade. The next day a girl follows him. After that everything goes wrong. Everyone in The Glade has limited time to escape before they are all devoured by the maze and it’s monsters.
“Are they changed because they want to go back to their old life, or is it because they’re so depressed at realizing their old life was no better than what we have now?” (149)
