1) “Everything is about to change.” I feel as though this quote sums up the plot of the  Maze Runner. Life in the “Glade” was simple and routine, when Thomas shows up  everything changes. Things start to get fishy when the first girl, Teresa,  shows up at the  Glade. From this moment on things that have never happened happen, the sky turns  gray, the walls of the glade don’t close, and one person dies every night. The plot of the  book is always changing with codes and mysteries becoming uncovered.”Everything is  about to change”. I can relate to this quote as my life is always changing.   

2) Thomas is a character from The Maze Runner that is in conflict with himself and  some of the children from the Glade. A kid called “Gally” accused Thomas that he was  the reason everybody was stuck in the maze. Nobody has memories of their life before  the maze, so no one could prove or disprove him, this puts Thomas in conflict with  society. Thomas makes a promise to a friend, Chuck, that he will take him home. When
