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.

 

Jan Review

This is one of those guilty pleasures kind of books it quickly reminded me of those teenage drama shows that you get sucked into and you just have to know how it all went down.  Each chapter is devoted to one of the characters we meet along the way and the main thing that caught me up in the story is all set in the future in this huge tower.  You get bit of pieces of the teenage drama that going on but you really get to know these characters and your kept on the edge of your toes guessing about who it is the fall to her death.

At the end of the story in the acknowledgements the author even hints that we are gonna get a television series for the book.  If your a gossip girl fan, a pretty little liars fan or just want a guilty pleasure story then this book is for you and be ready for the great glimpse into what our future may hold. Also it only a book one so we get more story.
