The Scorch Trials
The Scorch Trials is a 2015 American dystopian science fiction film based on the 2010 novel by James Dashner. It is the sequel to The Maze Runner and the second film in the series. It is a fast-paced thriller with action-packed scenes. The Scorch Trials features a cast of diverse characters and is rated PG-13.
The story begins with two groups of boys in their dormitories and a crazy group outside. The Cranks have captured and drugged the two main characters and forced them to attend their party. The Gladers and Minho ambush the Cranks, and one Crank has a gun. This was a surprise to me, since I didn’t expect to see a gun in a Scorch novel.

While the Maze Runner series has been a huge hit with readers, Dasner has recently apologized for sexual harassment and had his US publishing company, Penguin Random House, drop his future books. The allegations were made anonymously in the comments section of a School Library Journal article about the Maze Runner books. The claims include months of manipulation, grooming, and gaslighting.
