Book Review: The Thousandth Floor

I love finding a new YA series to get excited about, and this one has got me VERY excited.

If you liked Gossip Girl (my FAVE), you’ll love this because it’s basically the same thing, just set 100+ years in the future.  Instead of Serena Van der Woodsen, you have Avery Fuller, a perfect girl (literally, her parents crafted her with the best parts of their DNA) who lives on the top floor of a sky high apartment building in NYC.  Then there’s Rylin, a Dan Humphrey-type from downTower who finds herself swept into the lives of the rich, untouchable upper floor elite.  There’s also Leda, Eris, and Watt, other teens who are all trying to navigate their tumultuous social circle in this confusing, high-tech future NYC where emails are sent via contact lenses by blinking your eyes and it only takes about three hours to take a train to Paris.

I’m loving a YA series that depicts the future without having the world fall apart to dystopia.  I also like that they didn’t shy away from drugs/alcohol – this is not the Disney Channel version of life for future teens.  Thankfully, book 2 came out just as I finished this one, and I’m very excited to jump back into this world.

4 out of 5 stars.
