, 373 pages
Expected publication: April 8th 2014
by Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Divided by day and night and on the run from authorities, star-crossed young lovers unearth a sinister conspiracy in this compelling romantic thriller.

Seventeen-year-old Soleil Le Coeur is a Smudge—a night dweller prohibited by law from going out during the day. When she fakes an injury in order to get access to and kidnap her newborn niece—a day dweller, or Ray—she sets in motion a fast-paced adventure that will bring her into conflict with the powerful lawmakers who order her world, and draw her together with the boy she was destined to fall in love with, but who is also a Ray.

Set in a vivid alternate reality and peopled with complex, deeply human characters on both sides of the day-night divide, Plus One is a brilliantly imagined drama of individual liberty and civil rights, and a fast-paced romantic adventure story.

I love a good star-crossed romance and terrific world-building, and Plus One sounds like it has both. The writing is suppose to be sumptuous (author of Monstrous Beauty) and I'm so intrigued by the premise of the night and day dweller concept. This books sound like it pacts some thought provoking ideas and some terrific drama making it no fluff bunny. I'm totally in love with the cover and can't wait to discovery Elizabeth Fama's beautiful story.
