In August 2016, first-time author Katharine McGee introduced one of the summer’s hottest reads, the hit young adult novel THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR, which skyrocketed to #2 on the New York Times Bestseller List. THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR is the first installment of a planned trilogy about the glamorous lives of wealthy Manhattan teens who live in a thousand-story skyscraper one hundred years in the future. Based on the success of the first book, THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR television rights have already been optioned by Warner Bros. for a future series.
Now, the highly anticipated sequel THE DAZZLING HEIGHTS arrives with all the drama, romance, and hidden secrets that made the first book so popular. The five teens, Leda, Watt, Rylin, Avery and Callope, are back with all their high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, but their dangerous secrets may threaten them all. Unbeknownst to them, someone is watching their every move, plotting revenge. And in a world of such dazzling heights, just one wrong step can mean a devastating fall.
