In the Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens, he tells about a woman’s life, Nell Trent and her grandfather who live in London. Nell Trent is the main character. She is a young, beautiful girl. Nell is an orphan and lives with her grandfather in his antique shop in London. At the antique shop is a young boy, Kit who also lives there. During the novel, Nell teaches Kit how to read and write. Nell’s grandfather is worried that Nell will die in poverty. He turns to gambling in efforts to make more money to give her a better life. While gambling, Nell’s grandfather ends up losing everything and going into debt. The grandfather becomes indebted to the worst person possible, Daniel Quilp. He is a malicious money lender. Grandfather is unable to repay the money lent to him and unfortunately loses the antique shop. With nowhere to go, Nell and her grandfather end up having to beg on the streets of London.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
