The information presented in this article can be connected to characters in the novels The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. In each of these stories, characters are faced with a lack of sense of self, not knowing who they are because they think that they mean nothing to the world and are even worthless at times.
