From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Celie finds Nettie’s letters locked in Mr.__’s trunk (along with some of Shug’s underwear and some "nasty" pictures).
