Hélas, lorsque son petit cottage est cambriolé, elle est bien obligée de faire appel à lui et d'accepter son hospitalité, le temps que les réparations soient effectuées. Pourtant, même si cette cohabitation forcée ne l'enchante guère, le mépris laisse peu à peu la place à un sentiment plus troublant. Un sentiment qu'elle tente en vain de refouler. Car elle sait bien que Ryder ne s'intéressera pas longtemps à une fille comme elle.

Dorian Gray is the subject of a full-length portrait in oil by Basil Hallward, an artist who is impressed and infatuated by Dorian's beauty; he believes that Dorian's beauty is responsible for the new mode in his art as a painter. Through Basil, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, and he soon is enthralled by the aristocrat's hedonistic worldview: that beauty and sensual fulfilment are the only things worth pursuing in life. Newly understanding that his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian pursues a libertine life of varied and amoral experiences, while staying young and beautiful; all the while his portrait ages and records every sin. Dorian fait la connaissance de Lord Henry, dit Harry, un ami de Basil Hallward, un peintre reconnu. Conscient de la fascination et de la perversion que Lord Henry pourrait avoir pour son idéal de beauté, «cette nature simple et belle», Basil demande à Lord Henry de ne pas tenter de le corrompre. Mais Dorian se laisse séduire par les théories sur la jeunesse et le plaisir de ce nouvel ami qui le révèle à lui-même en le flattant: «Un nouvel hédonisme… Vous pourriez en être le symbole visible. Avec votre personnalité, il n'y a rien que vous ne puissiez faire.» Va naître dès lors en lui une profonde jalousie à l'égard de son propre portrait peint par Basil Hallward. Il formule le souhait que le tableau vieillisse à sa place pour pouvoir garder lui-même sa beauté d'adolescent.

The first in New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant's breathtaking dystopian sci-fi saga, Gone is a page-turning thriller that invokes the classic The Lord of the Flies along with the horror of Stephen King. In the blink of an eye, everyone disappears. Gone. Except for the young. There are teens, but not one single adult. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what's happened. Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day. It's a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: on your birthday, you disappear just like everyone else. . . . Michael Grant's Gone has been praised for its compelling storytelling, multidimensional characters, and multiple points of view.
