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.

Professional reviews

"Julia Whelan's impassioned narration enhances the author's story of an alternate reality. In this world, citizens are divided--living either by day or by night. Seventeen-year-old Soleil Le Coeur is a "smudge"--someone relegated by law to live under the veil of night. Sol fakes an injury as part of her plan to give her dying grandfather one last gift--to hold his great-granddaughter, Sol's niece, who is a "ray," someone who lives her life during the day. Unknowingly, Sol sets in motion a series of events that lead to political unrest and unlikely love. Sol's desperation and intense love come through powerfully in Whelan's delivery as the members of an intriguing subculture come to life. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
