Janie can't help but change as a result of her experience.  She begins as a trusting and loving teenager and daughter.  Her experience leads her to doubt the people who have always cared for her, to shut herself off from them as she struggles to decide if she should seek out her real family and if she should ever trust her parents - or anyone - again.  Her experience leaves her more tempered, less exuberant.  She matures and starts to understand the contradictions of the world.  She is able to see that not every situation is either right or wrong, black or white, but that it is possible for their to be positives and negatives in most situations.
