The Scorpio Races Chapter 23

By Maggie Stiefvater

Chapter 23

Puck

  • Puck considers taking the family's savings to buy Dove some better food, but she can't bring herself to do it.
  • She decides to ask Dory Maud for an advance on her teapots, so she hops on her bike to Hastaway.
  • Turns out that Thomas Gratton is headed that way, so he picks up Puck. 
  • On the way, they see another person headed that direction: Sean Kendrick. 
  • Puck practically acts like he's a stinky hitchhiker. She glares at him, still angry that he told her to stay off the beach.
  • It's so chilly in that car, Thomas Gratton doesn't need to turn on the air condition. 
  • But the chill lifts as they get close to town, and Sean Kendrick offers a capall to Puck.
