Summary

Welcome to Manhattan, 2118. A thousand-storey tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible - if you want it enough.

A hundred years in the future, New York's elite of the supertower lie, backstab and betray each other to find their places at the top of the world. Everyone wants something...and everyone has something to lose. As the privileged inhabitants of the upper floors recklessly navigate the successes and pitfalls of the luxury life, forbidden desires are indulged, and carefree lives teeter on the brink of catastrophe whilst lower-floor workers are tempted by a world - and unexpected romance - dangling just out of reach.

And on the 1,000th 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. So when a young woman falls from the top of the supertower, her death is the culmination of a scandal that has ensnared the top-floor elite and bottom floor. But who plummeted from the roof? And what dark secrets led to her fall?

Friends will be betrayed and enemies forged as promises are broken. When you're this high up, there's nowhere to go but down....

Critic reviews

"The luxe lives of Manhattan's elite are even more extraordinary in Katharine McGee's futuristic, highly addictive page-turner. The Thousandth Floor will give you vertigo and leave you eager for more." (Cecily von Ziegesar, number one New York Times best-selling author of Gossip Girl)
"Katharine McGee's vision of glamorous twenty-second century teens makes for an addictive and compelling read that left me longing for the second installment!" (Alyson Noël, number one New York Times best-selling author)
"Twenty-second century Gossip Girl-like fun. Sexy and engrossing!" (Melissa de la Cruz, number one New York Times best-selling author)
"An unparalleled mash-up of romance, mystery, and science fiction unlike anything I've read before. Katharine McGee gives the speculative fiction genre a much-needed make-over with a novel that's as glamorous as it is fiercely intelligent." (Kass Morgan, New York Times best-selling author of The 100)
"Compelling and imaginative - I loved everything from the fascinating vision of the future to the scandalous lives of the characters." (Amy Tintera, author of Ruined)
