All that glitters is not gold.
New York City, 2118. Manhattan is home to a thousand-story supertower, a breathtaking marvel that touches the sky. But amid high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, five teenagers are keeping dangerous secrets…
Leda is haunted by memories of what happened on the worst night of her life. She’ll do anything to make sure the truth stays hidden—even if it means trusting her enemy.
Watt just wants to put everything behind him…until Leda forces him to start hacking again. Will he do what it takes to be free of her for good?
When Rylin wins a scholarship to an upper-floor school, her life transforms overnight. But being there also means seeing the boy whose heart she broke, and who broke hers in return.
Avery is tormented by her love for the one person in the world she can never have. She’s desperate to be with him…no matter the cost.
And then there’s Calliope, the mysterious, bohemian beauty who arrives in New York determined to cause a stir. And she knows exactly where to begin.
But unbeknownst to them all, someone is watching their every move, someone with revenge in mind. After all, in a world of such dazzling heights, just one wrong step can mean a devastating fall.
4 out of 5 stars
The idea of this New York City tower is still so cool to me. Even though I know I would despise it, but I guess if I didn’t know anything different then I wouldn’t. Who knows. Anyway. It’s such a cool idea having the entirety of this massive city in one building.
At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about Watt and Leda together, but the angstyness between them kind of made it fun to read. They didn’t really seem to like each other at all, but here they are being all couple-y. Who knows.
Atlas and Avery kinda creep me out because even though they’re not biologically related they still are siblings and that’s just too weird for me to be on board for. I get that you can be in love with someone, but does that mean you could never be in love with someone else eventually? I strongly believe that you choose who you love, so that means you could also choose who to not love. But that could be just me, idk.
I really enjoyed this book but I just don’t have a ton of feelings about it. I feel like all readers deal with this sometimes where you like a book but you don’t like anything super specific about it, and it was good but not great. I just don’t have too many feelings about it. I’m excited to read the last book because go me with actually continuing series I start!
