Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Here's what I'm teasing this week:

Title: Plus One

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.
My teaser:
"You know," I said with a sudden revelation, grabbing the ends of my hair and holding them in front of my face, "I have no idea what I look like in sunlight." I realized too late that I was broadcasting that I was a Smudge. I scanned the faces of the visitors nearest us, but none of them had reacted.
- p. 228 of ARC

I lovedlovedloved Elizabeth Fama's Monstrous Beauty for its evocative prose and utter uniqueness, and after having read late into the night last night on Plus One, I know I'm going to enjoy this novel just as much. Is this supposed to be a re-imagining of The Day Boy and the Night Girl by George MacDonald, though? I see nothing mentioning that, but it seems like it, right?  Either way, this is a must-read for fans of the author and believable romance.  =)
