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.

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….

Was confusing because of the frequent switching of the point of views. Interesting concept, but had a boring plot.

A suspenseful ride in near-future world supersaturated with technology, both environmental and implanted, this story's engine is fueled by the sort of interpersonal intrigue that may attract fans of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars who don't necessarily consider themselves SF readers.

If you do not like it at first, try to stick to it! Each POV-style chapter reveals more about the characters. Though the group seems vapid and party-oriented at first, deeper issues like economic disparity, drug addiction, and difficult interpersonal relationships are later uncovered.

This book had very nice writing but a boring storyline.

Think Pretty Little Liars meets Gossip Girl, but a hundred years in the future, and on a gigantic, thousand-floor building. What would you get? The Thousandth Floor, of course. It is Manhattan, in the year 2118. A massive 1000-floor skyscraper has been built, in a style akin to a social pyramid: the richest and most famous people live at the top in gorgeous, luxurious apartments, while the poor live in desolate conditions on the bottom. Rich in drama and action, The Thousandth Floor follows the lives of 5 broken teenagers, each on 5 different floors, with their own dark secrets and pasts. Leda Cole hides a dangerous drug addiction. Watt Bakardi is a tech genius on a treacherous mission. Rylin Myers is a low-status girl suddenly swept into the world of the elite. Eris Dodd-Ranson’s previous life crumbles in seconds, after a painful betrayal. And living above them all, on the thousandth floor, is Avery Fuller, who is haunted by a romance she can never have. Filled with deception, drama and blackmail, The Thousandth Floor is a wonderfully written peek at the not-so-perfect lives of the dystopian elite. Do yourself a favour, and get a copy. Right now.

I was really not expecting what would happen at all when I first picked up the book. Just a warning for teens: mature audience only! There was a lot of content that I believe wouldn't be sensible for readers below the age of 16, at the very least. Such include the subjects of drug abuse, alcohol, sex, stalking, and a lot of bad decisions made through fear and secrets. It might take some time to organize who is who, as the perspective shifts between 5 people, but readers will start forming relations with the characters. Sometimes they are relatable, and other times not so much. But each and every one of them are unique to themselves, and the ending will leave everyone shocked for sure. My heart still aches from that fall. 4/5 stars

OH my god this book is amazing. You will not expect then ending at ALL and the characters are interesting and the plot is to die for. This book WILL keep you hooked. Literally you finish this book and you're like WOWOWOWOWOW.

Modern tragedy in a futuristic world, this book will leave you breathless. My stomach was in knots most of this story, as I waited impatiently for the heroes of the story to succeed and the creeps of the story to be found out--but I didn't always get what I wanted, which makes the story even better and more true to life. While this book is difficult to read because it's so emotional, it's definitely worth the time to meet all of these fantastic characters!

Good read, a page turner. Cannot wait for more!
