I've been on a lovely diet of Middle Grade Newbery Honor books and just finished reading Hoot by Carl Hiaasen. I've always wanted to read this novel, and I finally got my chance. Of course it was amazing, that's why I love Newbery Honor books. You can pick up any novel with the metallic stamp on the front and know you're getting a fantastic read.

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 30 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 actually turned out to be different than I thought, but I found it refreshing. In a crowded genre, this young adult dystopian makes a name for itself, and Dashner writes in a strong, clear, voice that grabs your attention.
Have you read The Maze Runner Series? Will you see the film this Fall?
