I like how you told this story. There's so much truth to don't judge a book by its cover. You made the MC feel real and her pain was palpable. I think you did a great job with the ending too. I thoroughly enjoyed this piece.

Alice may play a mean guitar, but it sounds like a few other folks may be highly-strung!!!! Great characterisation of your main characters and of the church folks, and I enjoyed the twist at the end.

What a great message this well-written story contains about not labeling or judging people simply by the way they dress! I felt so sorry for Alice, angry at the church members, and impressed by her grandma's loving acceptance of her Goth granddaughter. Great job! :)

You wrote a beautiful contrast between judgment and acceptance, which fit in well with this topic as well as last weeks :-}.
Aren't you glad you left it in?
