Even though you shouldn’t compare other people to yourself, I’m going to. Tom Sawyer from the novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer doesn’t really care if something terrible happens. On the other hand, I will sometimes freak out. In a like manner, we both tell our authority we are sick so we can skip school. Tom Sawyer tries to get out of chores, while I actually do them. We both detest school. You can easily tell Tom is different from me, but we are also alike in a few ways.
