Description

Experience the riveting, dystopian Uglies series seen as never before--through the eyes of Shay, Tally Youngblood's closest and bravest friend, who refuses to take anything about society at face value. "From the moment we are born, we are considered threats in need of 'special' management. 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.

Our customer reviews

I love manga and was thrilled to get the chance read this book. I have not read any of the prior books in the Cutters series and I was quite pleased that this could easily be a standalone book. The manga was splendidly done and the drawings were kept on the brighter tones which is always easier on the eyes and more appealing.
