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 is a refreshing YA read with very special combination of science fiction and teen soap drama! So many unexpected twists and gripping plot that make the book unputdownable!


The Tower is indeed very interesting! And the people, they’re like cyborgs with this thing called eartenna. Even though the setting of The Tower not being explained in a thorough way, I can see the great differences between the upper-floor (upTower) and downTower. The higher you live, the better social status you have.


Sometimes I would get confused with the characters and tend to forget about their background. Too many characters perhaps? Avery is genetically perfect but she’s still a human. She’ll get jealous with her best friend. What a roller coaster ride for Eris. And I yearn to read about POV of Atlas and Cord. They’re simply irresistible!


There are forbidden love, betrayal of friends, family issues and more that are so gripping! Like i said, unputdownable!

The ending is really shocking even though I knew someone is falling down from the top of the Tower (it’s 10560 feet tall, over 7 times taller than the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia) from the first page of the book, I was guessing hard who will that be from the five main characters of the book. It’s a WOW and “oh gosh” when I finished the last page of it.

The Thousandth Floor is highly recommended for YA readers who wants to have something different. This book is not just pretty at the cover.
