The Maze Runner, by James Dashner:

This novel is a nice neat package full of valuable lessons. In The Maze Runner, all the characters lose their memories before arriving in the Glade. Without these memories, Thomas loses his sense of self. As such, recovering his memories becomes one of his main goals. During his struggle to discover his identity, Thomas questions whether people are the sum total of their memories and past experiences or if we have essential natures that exist regardless of our experiences. This novel also teaches us about the battle of stability and chaos. Throughout the novel, tension exists between the benefits of order for maintaining a self-sustaining society and the necessary changes that must occur for the Gladers to survive the Maze. Students will gain insight into the necessity of sacrifice. Many characters risk their lives for the sake of saving those around them in various acts of self-sacrifice.
