One way I'm similar to my protagonist is that neither of us can stay still. In the story she wants to keep moving and not wait for a few hours to get on a train. I can't stay still most of the time because I want to use my time wisely. Another similarity is the fact that she takes care of her own. Anyone who I consider my friend I care for.

Some things that are similar in "I will come back for you" and Hitler's Secret are in Hitler's Secret they are "brother and sister" and in "I will come back for you" the main characters in the stories are brother and sister. Another similarity is in both stories the fathers fight the Nazis. In Hitler's Secret their father is their cover family. But supposedly both fathers were K.I.A. while fighting the Nazis. The last similarity is that in both stories traveling is uncomfortable. It's uncomfortable in Hitler's Secret the plane bomb drop area was loud and shaky. In "I Will Come Back for you" is they have to ride in a basket under pigs.
