"Where Are You Going Where Have You Been?" is a short story by Joyce Carol Oates about a beautiful fifteen-year-old girl named Connie. Connie does not get along with her mother or her older sister and spends her nights picking up boys. One evening, when her parents are gone, two men come to her house and ask her to go for a ride. After realizing the men are much older than they claim, Connie becomes afraid and the men threaten her and her family. In the end, Connie leaves with them.
