Plot structure Exposition Resolution The rising action of The Maze Runner
is when Thomas, Minho ,and Alby get stuck in the maze with the grievers all around them. Also Thomas and Minho find the griever hole by dodging a bunch of grievers and by throwing rocks and vines off of the cliff and they were so happy about maybe getting out of the maze and to tell the others about the griever hole that they found. Rising Action The climax of The Maze Runner, is when Alby runs right to the grievers or monsters because he didn't want to go back to the real world because he saw what it was like. So he ran right in front of a pack of grievers, but the grievers just cut and stunned him instantly. There was a war against the creators and monsters because the kids wanted to go through the griever hole to a real life in the real world. But they thought of the real world as paradise.

the maze is really for. The protagonist's basic problem is: To find a way out of the maze
