The Sixtieth Floor challenge is a fight for your life. If you win, you win fame, power, and are set for life. If you lose... you're dead. Anyone can try it, but what would really force someone to? 
      
      Clarissa Maynes, an upper city rich girl, is doing everything she can to hold the quickly crumbling remains of her family together, but while she does this, she might just tear it apart further. After losing her brother to a strange academy, and then her father to a tragic 'accident,' she, her mother, and her unborn little brother, all need to find a way to make an income to live in the upper ring. If they get kicked out to the lower ring they won't be able to survive. 
      
      Hayden lives in the lower ring (the slums of society) with his younger sister, Celestine, a young girl who would never survive without him. But when he is betrayed by a jealous member of his 'gang' he finds himself and the rest of his group facing charges as terrorists. They can face a firing squad for their 'crimes' or they can take The Challenge. 
      
      When the two are thrown into the challenge together, mixed with a few unexpected allies as well as enemies, they have to use each other's strengths to fight their way to the top. 
      
      Distopian Novel- since it wasn't exactly an option on genera.

I love the hair. It's so detailed and beautiful. I can't draw hair like that and it drives me bonkers!

Dun dun dun...! Things are going to go down, I can tell already.
ya know, I think that I didn't really focus on the prologue , I might have or might have not mistaken that girl for Clarissa *sheepish smile*
Hello, I found your story off of the FANTASCI contest book and this prologue was really good. I like the suspense and the cut off at the end!
