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!
Funny how only men get to drive in the story, right? Fathers, boyfriends, rapists all get the wheel, but never a woman. The only mention of a female driver is the "crazy woman driver" (36) who left a dent in Arnold's car – probably with good reason. Cars are a form of mobility, freedom, and empowerment in the story that women don't get to enjoy. We're a long, long way from Danica Patrick.
