YA ARC book #1 in trilogy

When Thomas wakes up in the lift he has no memory of anything except his first name. When the door opens he finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade, a large expanse enclosed by stone walls. None of them have any memory either and don't know why they are here. Every morning the doors open to the maze that surrounds them and every night the doors close tight. No one wants to be left in the maze after dark. Every thirty days a new boy arrives in the lift. But the day after Thomas arrives a girl is sent. She is the first girl ever and she has a message. The Gladers are convinced that if they can solve the mystery of the maze they can find a way out but the maze seems unsolvable. With the girl's arrival Thomas has the feeling that he might have some of the answers. Now he just needs a way to retrieve them from his own mind.
