About the Author
Katharine McGee is originally from Houston, Texas. She studied French at Princeton and then moved to Manhattan, where she began her publishing career at HarperCollins and later joined the Alloy Entertainment editorial team. After three years of plotting, outlining, and generally having far more fun than anyone ought to at work, she pitched a concept called "skyscraper city," and knew immediately that it was something she wanted to write. She holds an MBA from Stanford University.

I love how the "shared secret" between the four (Leda, Avery, Rylin and Watt) has changed the dynamic between them and how it had affected their lives.
I enjoyed this novel more than "The Thousandth Floor" because the characters have grown, they changed their lives, patched rifts and fell in love. McGee has made her characters more believable, I actually want things to work between two of the couples and I want the new character to be given a chance (she didn't choose her lifestyle).
A good step up for McGee in her writing and character development and that this is set up for another novel.
Three and a half stars.
THAT CLIFFHANGER!!! How am I supposed to wait until the third book is released, REALLY?!!
Everyone's lives are filled with drama, everyone's got a secret, and everyone's blackmailing someone AND I LOVE IT! I find myself craving to learn what the next big thing is that will send everyone spiraling out of control. There is a lot of aftermath from Book 1 but I found that Katharine did a great job creating new character dynamic with the same setting. I have found that I have looked differently at several characters, some I still hate and but new ones I've grown to like.
I have found that sequels, especially in young adult series, often fall short of the first book. That was absolutely not the case here. If anything, my obsession with this series only grew! I love how Katharine deepened the relationships between the characters, making the rich and tangled web of their various relationships feel even more satisfying. There was an unexpected romance between two characters that I found myself shipping IMMEDIATELY! And a villain redeemed (which is so much more unusual than just killing off your villains, because it requires so much more work for the author. So props to Katharine for pulling that off). I also love that we got to see more of the future world in this book. It’s such a refreshing change from the dark futures of all the other YA novels right now.
I’ve seen some reviewers angry that the surprise death at the end wasn’t Avery. But I actually like that!! I mean, isn’t Avery the predictable choice? I like that in each of these books, the person who dies is pretty much the LAST character you expect. It really keeps you guessing!!
Overall if you’re a fan of dramatic procedurals set in exciting high-stakes worlds, I think you will love this book!!
