Agreed.
Now...back to the original discussion.
Oh, now, Luna, I can back you up saying that Uglies and HG are nothing alike.

I can think of some, but not enough to make it worth noting...

Oh yeah...the old "typo trick"

Oh, but don't all YA novels have 16 year old girls that are caught between 2 guys? ::)

Not Mortal Engines. That's a boy between two girls, and THAT doesn't even happen until he's 18. And neither of the girls are attractive...
Oh, and Airborn...

There are some. But again, not enough to draw comparisons, especially since there's almost no death in Uglies, while Katniss wracks up a body count that would make Noble Six raise his eyebrow...

Straif I was being sarcastic.

Fanna, Bella was 17, only a years difference.

My bad.

As for the differences, the college one is the real one, the fandom one is the one we normally see.

Basically saying that one stole from the other. Usually its Uglies stole from HG. BLEGH...hell, just look at any of the other threads on this section.

And...let us not speak of Twilight other than to contemplate Katniss and Hester Shaw eliminating Bella.
