Yo Shmoop Scouts (and Jems, too):
We know it’s a stressful time of year at school. AP Exams. Finals. The hours (Who are we kidding? Days. Weeks.) of preparation to get your hair and dance moves just right for prom.
Lighten Up Folks:
- Today is Harper Lee’s birthday. We heart Harper. We think everyone in Shmoopland should have at least one pet named Finch, Boo, or Scout. Check out our Harper Lee biography and our take on the classic To Kill A Mockingbird. Salute!
- Geeks Gone Wild: Meet the Quadrocopter. A mutant helicopter. And it can juggle. We told you the future would be amaze-balls.
