The Ear, The Eye and The Arm

The Ear, The Eye and The Arm
by Nancy Farmer

Hardcover, 320 pages
Published March 1st 2004 by Orchard 
(first published March 1st 1994) 
From the back cover: 
 "The year is 2194, and Tendai, his brother, and his sister - the children of Zimbabawe's chief
 of security - have escaped from their father's estate to explore the dangerous city of Harare.
 Desperately wanting to prove himself to his father, Tendai embarks with his siblings on a
 dangerous vouage throug the Zimbabwe of the future."

Nancy Farmer was inspired by the mythology of the Shona culture to create this fabulous adventure full of bizarre characters and growing friendships. This is definitely not my favorite of Farmer's books but it is a fun read nonetheless.
