Final Ear, Eye, Arm post

By the end of the story, how has Arm changed?

He changed a lot. He Became connected to the baby Seki. He was also possessed by the spirit of Zimbobway. He also lost his power to sense other peoples feelings at the very end. These events made arm a more caring person.

By the end of the story, how has mother changed?

She changed a lot in the story. When her kids were gone I think she learned to care about them more and wanted to spend more time with them. She was also willing to fight for them. That is how mother changed.

By the end of the story, how has Tendai changed?

I think Tendai changed the most. He learned to care for his brother and sister in the Vlei and the mellowers moms house. He also learned to think his way out of situations by coming up with plans. Those plans are how they escaped Dead Mans Vlei. Thats how Tendai changed.
