In the very first pages of The Thousandth Floor, a girl falls almost three miles from the penthouse of "the Tower" to her death on the pavement below. Before we can figure out who she is (and why she jumped), author Katharine McGee rewinds two months to the summer of 2118 and introduces the fashionistas, cute guys, and frenemies who live in the Tower. Avery, genetically engineered for flawless beauty, lives on the top floor with her parents and adopted brother Atlas. Avery's best friend Leda is keeping two explosive secrets from everyone. Another "highlier” named Eris has her wealth and status ripped away when a family betrayal is revealed. Meanwhile, "downTower" Rylin starts working for ultra-rich Cord and hacker Watt is hired by Leda to spy on Atlas. Everyone has something to hide and something to gain as the scandalously tangled plot comes together at a fateful penthouse party!  (Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Award 2017-2018)
