  • The Scorch Trials By James Dashner Published by Delacorte Press in 2010

  • Thomas
  • Thomas, Newt, Minho, and all the other surviving gladers are in the room that their rescuers put them in after they escaped the maze. They are told by a man that works for WICKED that they will have to be put through phase 2 of testing which is called the scorch trials. 
  • All of it has been part of the trials, you understand? Phase One, to be exact. And we are still dangerously short of what we need. So we've had to up the ante, and now it's time for Phase Two. It's time for things to get difficult.
  • They head out into the scorch and realize that it is a big plain of nothing. It is very dry and hot. They are in search of the safe haven where the cure for the Flare (a disease that is fatal and makes you go crazy) is. They quickly figure out that it is harder than they thought when a terrible storm comes their way.

  • On their journey to the safe haven, they find a group of people in a small city. One is named Jorge and the other is named Brenda. The two of them help the other gladers find the safe haven in hope to receive the cure as well. However, when they were there, Brenda and Thomas were held captive by Cranks (people who have gone crazy) for information as to why Thomas' name is plastered all over the city.
  • Brenda
  • First question, who are you and why is your name on all signs all over this piece of crap city?

  • Jorge
  • After they got out of the city, there wasn't a long way to go to the safe haven. They approach a stick in the ground labeled "safe haven". The gladers, Brenda, and Jorge were very confused, when all of a sudden, a burg came to rescue them. It was WICKED (the creators of the maze). They had passed phase two.
  • We have over an hour left. Our safe haven is a stick in the ground?
