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!
Nicole retains her love for Dick, and tries to keep in touch with him. He lives in the U.S. and eventually begins working as a general practitioner in a New York town. Nicole hears he’s doing well, until some scandals ensue and he moves on.
