Themes and Styles~ Grunge and Doc Marten Boots
Casey is a very independent thinker. She loves a variety of music styles and clothes, not liking to be ‘labelled’ as one thing or another. Her style, if it is to be given a name, would be Grunge as this encompasses many different elements and allows people who dress this way a greater amount of freedom and creative expression than, for example, Punk style.
In Chapter one, the first indicator of a teenage ‘Subculture’ or style, is the mention of Casey’s Doc Martens. These large, unfeminine boots really introduce her attitude to life and how she sees herself.
