Rachel thought that the “popular crowd” at school looked and acted alike, seeming completely homogeneous or identical. This group of girls wore the same kind of clothing and fixed their hair in the same, homogeneous style. They even spoke in a similar, homogeneous tone of voice that seemed to end every sentence with a lilt, as if they were always asking questions.
