The final book in Katharine McGee´s epic New York Times bestselling Thousandth Floor series When you have everything, you have everything to lose. Welcome back to New York, 2119. A skyscraper city, fueled by impossible dreams. Leda just wants to move on from what happened in Dubai. Until a new investigation forces her to seek help-from the person she´s spent all year trying to forget. Rylin is back in her old life, reunited with an old flame. But when she starts seeing Cord again, she finds herself torn: between two worlds, and two very different boys. Calliope feels trapped, playing a long con that costs more than she bargained for. What happens when all her lies catch up with her? Watt is still desperately in love with Leda. He´ll do anything to win her back-even dig up secrets that are better left buried. And now that Avery is home from England-with a new boyfriend, Max-her life seems more picture-perfect than ever. So why does she feel like she would rather be anything but perfect? Perfect for fans of Kiera Cass and Anna Godbersen, and with all the drama, romance and hidden secrets from The Thousandth Floor and The Dazzling Heights, this explosive finale will not disappoint. ´´We couldn´t put this one down.´´ -The Skimm ´´The luxe lives of Manhattan´s elite are even more extraordinary in Katharine McGee´s futuristic, highly addictive page-turner. The irresistible cast of characters lures you into the elevator for an unexpected ride, packed with wittily prescient high-tech details and good old-fashioned romance and drama. The Thousandth Floor will give you vertigo and leave you eager for more.´´ -Cecily von Ziegesar, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gossip Girl

´´Guest workers of the United Arab Emirates embody multiple worlds and identities and long for home in a fantastical debut work of fiction, winner of the inaugural Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing.... The author´s crisp, imaginative prose packs a punch, and his whimsical depiction of characters who oscillate between two lands on either side of the Arabian Sea unspools the kind of immigrant narratives that are rarely told. An enchanting, unparalleled anthem of displacement and repatriation.´´ -Kirkus Reviews In the United Arab Emirates, foreign nationals constitute over 80 percent of the population. Brought in to construct the towering monuments to wealth that punctuate the skylines of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, this labor force works without the rights of citizenship, endures miserable living conditions, and is ultimately forced to leave the country. Until now, the humanitarian crisis of the so-called ´´guest workers´´ of the Gulf has barely been addressed in fiction. With his stunning, mind-altering debut novel Temporary People, Deepak Unnikrishnan delves into their histories, myths, struggles, and triumphs. Combining the irrepressible linguistic invention of Salman Rushdie and the satirical vision of George Saunders, Unnikrishnan presents twenty-eight linked stories that careen from construction workers who shapeshift into luggage and escape a labor camp, to a woman who stitches back together the bodies of those who´ve fallen from buildings in progress, to a man who grows ideal workers designed to live twelve years and then perish-until they don´t, and found a rebel community in the desert. With this polyphony, Unnikrishnan brilliantly maps a new, unruly global English. Giving substance and identity to the anonymous workers of the Gulf, he highlights the disturbing ways in which ´´progress´´ on a global scale is bound up with dehumanization.
