Title: The Thousandth Floor
Author: Katharine McGee

My Teaser:

Finally Rylin bent down and examined her knees. They were badly skinned and blood was smeared on her palms where she’d fallen. Taking a deep, ragged breath, she started the long trip home.

Goodreads Synopsis:

NEW YORK CITY AS YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE.

A thousand-story tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future where anything is possible—if you want it enough.

WELCOME TO MANHATTAN, 2118.

A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. Everyone there 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.

ERIS DODD-RADSON’s beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.

RYLIN MYERS’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will this 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 for 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. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.

Amid breathtaking advancement and high-tech luxury, five teenagers struggle to find their place at the top of the world. But when you’re this high up, there’s nowhere to go but down….

        1. No I don’t believe it is.
          The reviews I read said that because they were raised as brother and sister that it is incest and if they knew it was in the book they would have never picked it up.
          I think that it doesn’t count as incest because they are genetically related at all.

            1. I have seen a couple, didn’t realise there were so many now haha. I’ve heard V.C Andrews has some pretty bad incest lol.
              The Thousandth Floor probably came as a shock to a lot teenagers because 1) no one had any idea it was in there 2) they don’t read those step brother romance books or V.C Andrews so this is like massive for them lol

  1. Great teaser! I’m hoping I’ll get to this book within the next few months. I was really excited for it but then started seeing a lot of readers who were disappointed and put off reading it, haha.
    And just a heads up, Teaser Tuesday isn’t hosted by Books and a Beat anymore. She closed that blog and it’s being hosted by The Purple Booker (http://thepurplebooker.com) now. 🙂
