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!
Mr. Brinker-Smith is one of the teachers at Gravesend Academy. He's British; he's also married to Ginger Brinker-Smith and is the father of twins. He and his wife have a really active love life and hook up in pretty much every dorm room at Gravesend Academy during the holidays. They end up doing it in a bed under which Owen is hiding, totally scarring him.
