The book centers around about six teens each living in the tower. It starts with a chapter in 3rd person POV and describes a girl falling off the tower and dying which is how the book ends. All the characters connect in some manner as the story progresses. the girl who gets killed used to be very rich but her dad left her and her mom for someone younger and so they're forced to move to the lower levels of the tower where she meets a girl whom she falls in love with. There's a boy with an illegal quantum computer in his head that assists him with everything. There's a girl who's biologically perfect but is in love with and has sexual relations with her (step or half) brother. There's a crazy jealous girl who came back from rehab only to get addicted again and finds out about all these people's crazy secrets and is the one who ends up pushing the girl from the top of the tower. It's actually a really great book but it came out about 3 years ago and I can't remember the title. The cover of the book is gold and silver and the title is written in cursive.

W.O.W >6 MyriadBooks:,

Why are you so kind and considerate? I must just be an old curmudgeon.

I expect New Members to ACTUALLY read the rules/suggestions/guidelines...

Must be old fashioned? Or just not like punctuation MARKS!
