Tomboy Joanna Mitchell is an 18-year-old high school senior. On her first day at North Shore High School, she encounters a clique, "The Plastics", which consists of "Mandi" Weatherly, Chastity Meyer and Hope Plotkin. Jo also meets "Abby" Hanover. Mandi sees Abby as a rival. Jo develops an attraction to Tyler Adams. Despite Jo's attempts to avoid the Plastics, conflict develops between them and Abby.
When Jo meets Abby's father a successful infomercial entrepreneur, he offers to pay Jo's college tuition in exchange for remaining good friends with Abby. Jo accepts, motivated by her desire to attend university. Jo, Tyler, and Abby become close friends. Jo also learns that Tyler is Mandi's stepbrother. Mandi also escalates her war of pranks.
Jo, Abby and another outcast girl named Quinn start a new clique called the "Anti-Plastics". They enact a series of pranks against Chastity and Hope, and Jo runs against Mandi for Homecoming Court, and their campaign threatens Tyler and Jo's relationship. Jo tries to give back the money Sidney Hanover gave her for her friendship with Abby, which leads to Jo's estrangement from both Abby and Tyler.
Tyler and the other Anti-Plastics try to help prove her innocence with the help of Elliott, a computer hacker. After beating the Plastics in a game of flag football, Mandi and Nick are arrested after images of them planting the money in Jo's shed are found by Elliot and revealed. At the school's Homecoming Dance, Abby and Elliott are elected as king and queen, thanks to Jo dropping out of the competition.
