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….

“The Thousandth Floor” by Katharine McGee is fun and entertaining. I really enjoyed the scandals. I think the comparison to the “Gossip Girl” TV show is spot on. This is very much a futuristic “Gossip Girl.”

This cover is gorgeous. I love how shiny it looks. I was lucky enough to have a friend that had a spare ARC. I was excited to dive right in. “The Thousandth Floor” is full of teenage gossip and it is so addictive.

The higher up you live in the tower the richer you are. Living in a world where there is high-tech toys it sucks if you live on the lower levels. The lower the level you live on, the less access you have to the futuristic toys. There is many things in this world that are so cool. It would be awesome to have pings.

This story starts off with a girl falling off of a roof. The reader doesn’t know who the girl is but the whole novel is to lead up to finding out who the girl is. We go two months back and meet all these characters that are involved in the life of this girl, that dies. These characters all have their problems. Each person thinks the other one has a perfect life.

This story is definitely not perfect. The writing isn’t the best in the world but I think McGee will improve as she continues the story. The story was interesting and entertaining. I loved it. The story is completely addicting and I look forward to book two.
