This book is basically Gossip Girl set in the future. Personally, I LOVE GG so I liked this book but if you are not so into teen drama then skip this book.
The Thousandth Floor was just the right combination of drama, suspense and most of all ridiculousness because while the book may seem like it’s about your typical group of rich teens, it’s actually about your typical group of rich teens FROM THE FUTURE. The book takes place in Manhattan, which has been replaced with a single thousand floor tower (the rich kids living on the upper floors) in the year 2118. I definitely enjoyed the story but if it hadn’t been for all of the inventive future tech and ways of life of the future I wouldn’t have been as into it as I was.
The Thousandth Floor begins with a character falling off the roof of the thousandth floor and plummeting to their death and then it immediately flashes back and details the events of the past two months leading up to that night. The victim of the fall isn’t revealed until the final chapters so all of the speculation also adds to the fun of reading. The story is told through the multiple POVs of mean girl Leda, little miss perfect Avery (no really, her parents designed her genetics to be perfect) who’s harboring quite a secret, the outgoing and fun-loving Eris who’s life is about to spawn much gossip, Rylin, the poor girl from the lower floors of the tower who bonds with a member of the upper floors and Watt, a tech genius, also with a big secret.
If you can get past the drama, the book is fun! Again, if you love Gossip Girl this book is for you.
