Parts 11 & 12
Another similarity I can see in both of these novels, is that they both discover new things, and decide to keep it that way. For example, when they ran away, either by someone else forcing them or by their own will, they discovered many new things that were so different to them, yet they didn't want to let go of the new ways of living. In Anthem, they discover that the sacred word is "EGO", and they learn how to use the pronoun "I". After acquiring the new knowledge, they wanted to keep it with them in order to live in a new lifestyle. In Uglies, Tally has to leave in a quest to find her best friend Shay that ran away so she wouldn't become a pretty, all of that she did because they forced her or else Tally wouldn't become a Pretty(which was her lifelong dream). When she got there, se saw how great their life was, and how better her life could be. She falls in love, and decides that she wants to stay there, but things go wrong while trying to abandon her previous life. All this was also in order to live in a new life style.
