Run out and get this Book (or movie)!
I watched another book-turned-movie with my oldest daughter this weekend. Calli's movie selection was THE MAZE RUNNER. I loved this one! The main character finds himself delivered (via elevator) into a strange, isolated world. He is in the company of other young men who have suffered the same fate. None of the boys have a memory of their life before being sent up in the elevator. There is an ever-changing maze that might provide an escape back into the outside world. Problem is, the maze is full of danger. Do the captives brave the maze; or succumb to the circumstances they have been given? Read or watch to find out! P.S.-Looking deeper, I see a great metaphor in this movie. Moving outside of your world, although scary, is sometimes the only escape to a better life.
