The Spectacular Now Chapter 18 Summary
- Hey, we finally get to find out why Sutter calls his stepdad Geech!
- His real name is Garth Easley, but squooshed together and shortened, it ends up as Geech. Got it?
- When he married Sutter's mom, Holly was psyched to live in his big, fancy house. Their mom changed, too.
- She started acting like a snobby millionaire, but she's not affectionate towards Geech at all, now like she was with Sutter's real dad.
- When Sutter gets home, he tries to sneak up to his room, but he gets busted.
- His mom starts in on him, for the fiasco at Holly's, for staying out all night…
- And then Geech chimes in, threatening to send him to military school.
- Usually his mom doesn't join in these threats, but today she jumps right in…
- Which makes Geech back off. He mumbles something about checking the cost, and Sutter knows he'd never spend the money on it.
- In the end, he's just grounded, and has to fork over cash to Kevin until the suit is paid for.
