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.
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….
I really enjoyed this book because it reminded me so much of a futuristic Gossip Girl story. And I love Gossip Girl! I like how this story started with the end: a girl falling off the 1000th floor on the Tower. I like the mystery behind it and how we don’t know who it is at the beginning.
I loved the 5 main characters that the story is told from:
Avery – was genetically made to be perfect and she hates it.
Leda – has a secret addiction.
Rylin – mother died and she has to take care of her and her little sister.
Eris – her life just falls apart throughout the story.
Watt – a genius who gets hired to spy on one of the upper level girls.
They are all so different yet they bring so much to the story. A lot of which could be spoilerific. So, there isn’t a whole lot to say about them or the plot without giving anything away.
I loved every complication that was within this story: love, betrayal, backstabbing, secrets, and all those typical drama you would get in the everyday life. You really just gotta go in blind with this one. And I hope you liked it as much as I did! 🙂
