||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
