Katharine McGee studied English and French literature at Princeton and has an MBA from Stanford. It was during her years living in a second-floor apartment in New York City that she kept daydreaming about skyscrapers— and then she started writing. The Thousandth Floor (HarperCollins) is her first novel. New York City as you’ve never seen it before. A thousand-story tower stretching into the sky. Welcome to Manhattan, 2118. Everyone here wants something…and everyone has something to lose. Leda Cole’s flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried, and a boy she never should have touched. Rylin Myers’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will her new life cost Rylin her old one? Watt Bakradi is a tech genius with a secret: he knows everything about everyone. But when he’s hired to spy by an upper-floor girl, he finds himself caught up in a complicated web of lies. And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect, who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.
