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.
We've both read Plus One already and can't wait to share our reviews with you, a little closer to the publication date. But I'll let it slip that it's getting a whole ton of stars from the both of us. I've already been recommending it to people right and left (especially my fellow Chicagoans, but more on that in the review-to-come). Also, my cat even loved the book so much that he chewed up the cover of my ARC. So, there is that.
Now.... are you ready for the cover?
Here it is!!
Isn't that beautiful? It goes so well with the book, the characters, the themes... aaaah I'm just so excited about it! I hope you are, too. Thanks so much to Ksenia, Elizabeth, and FSG for letting us share the big reveal with all of you!
Plus, thanks to the publisher, we've got two ARCs of Plus One to give away to lucky readers in the US or Canada! Enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win.
