By James Dashner

Just as in The Maze Runner, the Gladers in The Scorch Trials spend most of their time scared out of their minds. Not only do the kids fear the consequences of dealing with WICKED and being attacked by crazy creatures and Cranks, but they're also forced to face the fear of death. They witness it all the time, so it's pretty hard for any of them to forget about it. In some cases, fear can be helpful, but it sure isn't fun to be running around scared all of the time.
