Description

New York Times bestseller

New York City as you’ve never seen it before. A thousand-story tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible—if you want it enough.

Welcome to Manhattan, 2118.

A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. But people never change: everyone here wants something…and everyone has something to lose.

Leda Cole’s flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried and a boy she never should have touched.

Eris Dodd-Radson’s beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.

Rylin Myers’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will her new life cost Rylin her old one?

Watt Bakradi is a tech genius with a secret: he knows everything about everyone. But when he’s hired to spy by an upper-floor girl, he finds himself caught up in a complicated web of lies.

And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.

Perfect for fans of One of Us Is Lying and Big Little Lies, debut author Katharine McGee has created a breathtakingly original series filled with high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, where the impossible feels just within reach. But in this world, the higher you go, the farther there is to fall….

From Publishers Weekly

May 30, 2016 – In a confident debut, McGee creates a fascinating 22nd-century world set in a single thousand-floor mega-tower that houses all of Manhattan. Centering on the genetically flawless Avery Fuller, 16, who lives on the top floor and has everything a wealthy girl could want or need, McGee shifts smoothly among the intersecting stories of a handful of teens. Avery is always the most beautiful girl in the room, much to the chagrin of her best friend Leda, who is hiding a serious drug addiction. Meanwhile, Eris's perfect life crumbles when she learns that her father is not her biological father and, therefore, she and her mother are penniless. Rylin, an orphan, takes a job as a maid for spoiled Cord Anderton, only to begin an uncertain courtship. Watt, a computer genius, creates an illegal "quant" named Nadia that helps him navigate the social structure of the tower. Replete with romance, jealousy, and enticing future fashions and tech, McGee's story delivers more than enough drama and excitement to hook readers and leave them anticipating the next book in the trilogy. Ages 13 up. Agency: Alloy Entertainment.

Customer Reviews

A suspenseful, totally gripping, and surprisingly enjoyable read.

THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR by Katharine McGee is a suspenseful, totally gripping, and surprisingly enjoyable read. Imagine NYC 100 years in the future, mostly located within a 1,000-story tower. The book begins with a mysterious death—someone has fallen from the top floor.

From the very first page it felt like I had to race to the finish line.The structure of this story is fantastic—beginning with a mystery made it nearly impossible to put down. I was desperate to figure out who had died and how everything had escalated to that point.

We follow 5 separate narratives, all expertly woven together. The multiple narrators took a little getting used to, but once you adjust it was quite an effective tool for pushing the story forward, as well as leaving the reader in quite a bit of suspense. Plus we were shown a variety of different life experiences in the tower (particularly class politics).

The finale was spectacularly satisfying, and the author still managed to leave readers with an incredible cliffhanger. I will absolutely pick up the next book in this series. Highly recommend!

Note: I received a FREE ARC (advanced reader copy) from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
