The Maze Runner from Book to Film

The Maze Runner by James Dashner--an intense, action-driven book about a group of teenagers trying to escape a dangerous maze in a post-apocalyptic world. I was utterly fascinated when the book came out five years ago, and I've lost track of the number of readers--teens and adults--who have come into the bookstore for The Maze Runner and the sequels and companion novel. So it's no surprise that The Maze Runner is the latest YA movie adaptation to find its way to the big screen, and it's hitting theaters later this month, on September 19th!

To celebrate the release, I'm giving away a movie tie-in version of the book, a $25 Visa gift card to go see the movie in theaters, and a money maze!

Take a look at that trailer and tell me that you're not excited to see this movie, I dare you:

About the film:

When Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organization known as W.C.K.D. Only by piecing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape. Based upon the best-selling novel by James Dashner.
