    Surely other people have alternate Wonderland characterizations for the Freakangels.

    The "new girl" thing is kind of interesting, especially considering that as of a week ago, Whitechapel has received quite a large number of "new" girls and boys. Given Conner's tendency to pick up "strays" you'd think that Alice might be called "Conner's new girl" to denote her attachment to him, but she's not. But they don't all call her Alice yet, either, at least not when she out of earshot. "New girl" sounds like something teenagers would call somebody they consider to be a peer. And the 'angels still have a lot of teenager in them, as witness the little squabble between Miki, Kaitlyn and Arkady in #55. It's easy to forget how mentally young the Freakangels are. We don't know how long they've been together on their own as a unit, but it could be as long as ten years. And in just under a week or so, they've made major steps toward accepting Alice as one of them, even if she's still "new girl."

    I like Alice a lot, but the thing about the FreakAngels calling Alice "new girl" stems from them not wanting to get too attached to her.
    I fear they expect a deep line command to still be embedded in Alice and one day she'll grab her shotgun and blow one or two of their heads off before they can "pop" hers.
    So they call her "the new girl" to show a level of attachment, yet at the same time a level of detachment. I mean what's the point of getting to know someone if you are only going to end up killing her?
    Again that is all conjecture, and as stated in volume 2, the FreakAngels never intended to stay in Whitechapel, they were just crashing there as a way station, so they could have called Alice "the new girl" just to stay detached for when they eventually left. But again the FreakAngels are notoriously spotty on planning unless some drastic measures are taken to prod them into taking them.
