Tia Vogtsberger, Staff Writer

The Thousandth Floor is about a futuristic New York in the year 2118. Ironically, 100 years from this year. The book is about five different lives of teenagers that live on different levels of a skyscraper. Avery Fuller lives on the top floor, and seems to have the perfect life, except she has a huge secret that could ruin everything. Leda Cole is Avery’s best friend, but is always in Avery’s perfect shadow. Leda has never kept a secret from Avery, until now. If Avery ever found out, it would be the end of their friendship. Suddenly, someone comes back to the tower and everything changes, for the worse. Eris Dodd-Radson has the picture-perfect, care-free life in the Tower. But one slip up from her mother sends her world and family tumbling down. Literally. Rylin Myers works for an acquaintance but their relationship turns more serious, and it toys with her past life and risks the path of her future. Watt Bakradi is tech savvy and is the best spy for any job. When he is hired to spy on a someone upstairs, he gets trapped in romances, lies and corrupt friendships. Together, these five plus the one who returns, change the Tower forever.

New and old relationships, parties, drugs, and lies make this book a serious and speedy climb to the top. At the top of the climax and also the Tower, the problems are spoken out loud and something special is lost.

Highly recommend to anyone who loves to read and loves suspenseful romances.
