Holden wants to visit Phoebe at the family apartment, in the middle of the night, without his parents'  knowledge. Fortunately, there is a new elevator operator on duty who does not recognize him.  Holden pretends to be visiting the Dicksteins who have an apartment on the same floor as his  parents. Using his key to enter, Holden sneaks to Phoebe's room only to realize that she now is  sleeping in D.B.'s room because he is away in Hollywood; she likes the huge desk and bed. Holden  peruses items on her desk, by lamplight, until he wakens Phoebe. She reveals that their parents are  out for the evening and will return very late. The maid is in the apartment to care for the girl. As they  talk, Phoebe guesses that Holden has been expelled and concludes that their father will kill him.  Upset, she hides her head under a pillow. Holden goes to the living room for cigarettes.

    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.
