A Librarian Reads…

The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

In the year 2118, a giant tower covers what used to be Central Park. It is a thousand stories tall and has anything anyone could ever need: homes, stores, hospitals, schools, even parks. The higher you go, the fancier—and more expensive—everything is. Avery lives at the very top and seems to be perfect in every way. Just a few floors below her are her best friends Leda and Eris. Far below them live Watt and Rylin. Secrets, lies, and desperation bring them all together, until one of them pays the ultimate price.

An intriguing possible future, this books shows that while our surrounding may change, human nature really doesn’t. Recommended for readers in high school and up who enjoy books about the dark underside of glamorous lives.
