The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner is an awesome dystopian novel in which teens live in a place called the Glade. They have no recollection of their past, who put them there, and how to get out, until a special boy named Thomas shows up and the Glade begins to fall apart. This book has non-stop action and will literally keep you in the dark until its last remaining pages!

I haven’t read these books since 5th grade, but I still love them! A group of dolls are traveling on a ship because they have lost their parents and are searching for them. This is a really sweet adventure about family and a place called home.

Some Boys by Patty Blount

This one came out very recently and so far everyone is loving it. I’m only a few pages in, but it’s very intriguing! It tells the story of a girl who has been date-raped as she tries to overcome this trauma. While her friends and entire school turn against her, one boy, Ian, believes her. He accepts her and cares, but he’s got a secret himself.
