In Queens Girl: Black in the Green Mountains, Jackie goes from the tropical climes of Nigeria to Bennington College in Vermont, a clean green and white expanse she fell in love with at age 13 after seeing a picture of the campus in a catalog. The dozen become the BBG Bennington Black Girls and they become a tight-knit group, with Curry shape-shifting into everyone from the militant stoner Sherrie to a sweet-as-pie southern belle willing to tow the line to get to med school no matter what. Curry held us in the palm of her hand from the very first moment she steps onto Lawrence E. The backdrop of mountains, autumn leaves and a white picket fence gives a New England-y feel to the proceedings.

Scene people often dye their hair colors like blond, pink, red, green, or bright blue. The scene subculture is considered by some to have developed directly from the emo subculture and thus the two are often compared. In a article by Phoenix New Times , writer Chelsea Mueller described the appearance of the band Job for a Cowboy a band that was deathcore at the time by writing that the band "may look like scenesters with shaggy emo haircuts and tight pants, and may mock metal greats, but this death-metal band is for real.
