"To limit the press is to insult a nation; to prohibit reading of certain books is to declare the inhabitants to be either fools or slaves."

The Scorch Trials (Book 2)
This is book 2 in The Maze Runner series. The first was amazing, and I loved the way it ended. Dashner has a way of taking you to the mountaintop and then throwing you off and still making you want to do it all over again. We go on the journey with Thomas and his friends again, and you feel yourself on this emotional roller coaster through the entire book. Just as Thomas by the end has no idea who to trust or who to believe, neither do you. I can't wait to see where the series goes from here. Are we going to get any real answers? In the end, will we trust anything or anyone?
This is survival fiction--science fiction genre wise. Grade level-Young Adult or 9-12th grade (it really depends on your emotional maturity) Some images may be hard on some young kids. Other series by this author (also great)--The 13th Reality Series.
