We are watched and shaped and exploited by a force most of us never see. . . . All to keep us safe. . . . Do you feel safe?! Or do you feel like you’re in a cage?”—Shay In Pretties, Tally Youngblood and her daring best friend, Shay, both underwent the operation that turned them from ordinary Uglies into stunning beauties. Now this thrilling new graphic novel reveals Shay’s perspective on living in New Pretty Town . . . and the way she sees it, there’s more to this so-called paradise than meets the eye. With the endless parties and custom-made clothes, life as a Pretty should be perfect. Yet Shay doesn’t feel quite right. She has little to no memory of her past; it’s as if something in her brain has inexplicably changed. When she reunites with Tally and the Crims—her rebellious group of friends from Uglyville—she begins to recall their last departure to the wild, and the headstrong leader she used to be. And as she remembers the truth about what doomed their escape, Shay decides to fight back—against the status quo, against the mysterious Special Circumstances, even against her own best friend.

Découvrez l'intégrale des UGLIES en un seul ebook ! 1. Uglies : Uglies Dans le monde de l'extrême beauté, les gens normaux sont en danger. Tally aura bientôt 16 ans. Comme toutes les filles de son âge, elle s'apprête à subir l'Opération et à intégrer la caste des Pretties. Dans ce futur paradis, Tally n'aura plus qu'une préoccupation, s'amuser... Mais la veille de son anniversaire, Tally découvre le monde des rebelles. Là-bas, elle apprend que la beauté parfaite et le bonheur absolu cachent plus qu'un secret d'État : une manipulation. Que va-t-elle choisir ? Devenir rebelle et rester laide à vie, ou succomber à la perfection ? 2. Uglies : Pretties Tally est enfin devenue une sublime Pretty. Elle a de grands yeux pailletés, un visage et un corps parfaits ; tout le monde l'apprécie, et son petit copain est craquant. Ses rêves les plus fous sont devenus réalités. Mais au coeur de cette vie de fête, de luxe high-tech et de liberté, perce un sentiment de malaise : quelque chose ne va pas, quelque chose d'important. Un jour, Tally reçoit un message, écrit de sa propre main lorsqu'elle était Ugly... A mesure qu'elle le lit, les souvenirs reviennent : sous la beauté parfaite et le bonheur absolu des Pretties se cache une effroyable vérité. Désormais pour Tally un choix cruel s'impose : oublier à tout prix cette vérité ou fuir la cité pour sauver sa peau. 3. Uglies : Specials " Special circumstances " : lorsque Tally n'était encore qu'une Ugly rebelle et repoussante, ces mots la faisaient frissonner. Et voilà que suite à son opération, elle est devenue Special à son tour ! Pourtant, la jeune fille ne peut s'empêcher de penser à son ancienne vie. C'est pourquoi le jour où on lui propose d'éliminer les insoumis de La Nouvelle-Fumée, un choix douloureux s'impose à elle : doit-elle écouter la petite voix de sa conscience ou mener à bien la mission pour laquelle elle a été conçue ? Quelle que soit sa décision, le monde de Tally ne sera plus jamais le même. 4. Uglies : Extras Plusieurs années se sont écoulées depuis que la rebelle Tally a renversé le système des Uglies, des Pretties et des Specials. Débarrassé de ces castes, le monde connaît une véritable renaissance, sous le regard permanent de mille millions de caméras. La société n'est plus qu'une gigantesque émission de télé-réalité. La célébrité règne sur le monde... Une chose pourtant n'a pas changé : les moins de seize ans ne sont pas censés se montrer en ville. Surtout quand on est une extra comme Aya, une anonyme au rang facial ridicule. Sa seule chance de s'arracher à la médiocrité : claquer sur le nouveau réseau une histoire inouïe et... dangereuse.
