Uglies: Shays Story TP, co-written by Devin Grayson
Uglies told Tally Youngblood’s version of life in Uglyville and the budding rebellion against the Specials. Now comes an exciting graphic novel revealing new adventures in the Uglies world - as seen through the eyes of Shay, Tally’s rebellious best friend who’s not afraid to break the rules, no matter the cost. A few months shy of her sixteenth birthday, Shay eagerly awaits her turn to become a Pretty - a rite-of-passage operation called ‘the Surge’ that transforms ordinary Uglies into paragons of beauty. Yet after befriending the Crims, a group of fellow teens who refuse to take anything in society at face value, Shay starts to question the whole concept. And as the Crims explore beyond the monitored borders of Uglyville into the forbidden, ungoverned wild, Shay must choose between the perks of being Pretty and the rewards of being real.
Devin Grayson News from the Wiki
Devin Grayson took up the invitation to edit her own wiki page, and left this tantalizing piece of information:
Currently she is working with Random House on a graphic novel trilogy based on a best-selling YA SF series, the title of which has not yet been announced.
I hadn’t heard this anywhere else, so pardon me if it’s actually old news. What series could it be? (Probably not the Hunger Games, though, since they’re from Scholastic)
Tournament Tuesdays: Round 2!
Welcome to the next round of voting! The first round was very exciting, and I can’t wait to see what happens this round. Again, you have until 10PM EST next Monday to vote.
Devin Grayson was born in New Haven, Connecticut and raised in Northern California. Her early ambition was to be an actress; she studied at the Berkeley Shakespeare Festival and attended the San Francisco School of the Arts, but while in community college she decided to become a writer instead, and subsequently transferred to Bard College in upstate New York. Her interest in comics was first kindled when she happened to see an episode of Batman: The Animated Series on television.
Her first comic book script to see print was “Like Riding a Bike”, a 10-page short that appeared in the Batman Chronicles in 1997. In 2005, she wrote a creator-owned mini-series for DC’s Wildstorm label entitled Matador with artist Brian Stelfreeze. She finished a five-year run on Nightwing in 2006. Her work on Gotham Knights made her the first, and as of 2010 the only, woman to serve as the regular writer for a Batman title. She has also written for the series The Titans, as well as USER, published under the Vertigo imprint.
She is openly bisexual, and her work has been frequently praised in the gay press. USER was nominated for the GLAAD Outstanding Comic Book award in 2001 and she has been interviewed in The Advocate and Curve.
Her work was nominated for the Comics Buyer’s Guide Award for Favorite Writer in 1999 and 2000. She is best known for illuminating the interior lives of licensed publication characters, and creating new characters with compelling, original voices. As of 2009, she has been working extensively in the video game industry, lending her writing talents to casual game string files and MMORPGs.
