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, Elizabeth Fama's Plus One is a brilliantly imagined drama of individual liberty and civil rights, and a fast-paced romantic adventure story.

Soleil Le Coeur lives in a world where part of the population, called Smudges, live and work in the dark night and the other part, known as Rays, live and work during the day. When she makes the choice to kidnap her niece so that her sick grandfather can meet her, everything falls apart. Plus One is a great book for teens who love a little romance and a lot of adventure. The beauty of the book is increased because of how the author addresses prejudice and liberty in a unconventional way.
