Title: Plus One
   Author: Elizabeth Fama
   Release Date: April 8th, 2014

     It takes guts to deliberately mutilate your hand while operating a blister-pack sealing machine, but all I had going for me was guts.

     Sol Le Coeur is a Smudge—a night dweller in an America rigidly divided between people who wake, live, and work during the hours of darkness and those known as Rays who live and work during daylight. Impulsive, passionate, and brave, Sol deliberately injures herself in order to gain admission to a hospital, where she plans to kidnap her newborn niece—a Ray—in order to bring the baby to visit her dying grandfather. By violating the day-night curfew, Sol is committing a serious crime, and when the kidnap attempt goes awry it starts a chain of events that will put Sol in mortal danger, uncover a government conspiracy to manipulate the Smudge population, and throw her together with D'Arcy BenoĆ®t, the Ray medical apprentice who first treats her, then helps her outrun the authorities—and with whom she is fated to fall impossibly and irrevocably in love.

     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 compelling, rapid-fire romantic adventure story.

My Stance:

     Plus one is one of those books that slipped under my radar, while I am not the best at picking out some of the books as they come out, I find that this story is rather great. I am not sure what it is about the plot and the synopsis that has me going, but this book just looks great. I love the cover as well and how it plays into the story as well. I find that an artist who can actually capture something like that and manages to grab my attention faster than anything before.

     I love in this book how everything around Sol and the government is so well formed. While it doesn't say to how well the story will pan out, but it gives a good indication to the thought put into it. Frankly I am not sure how well the whole day/night separation will work, it seems like a cheesy way to create a conflict and get the story rolling. Further this seems like a book similar to The Giver, but I understand that it's not I know that. I love the setup and the plot for this book, I can't wait to add it to my collection.
