The plot revolves around a clique of four girls who devise a plan to weaken the boys at their school with arsenic. The plan is to slowly poison the boys through their lunches, inspired by the "queen bee" Chloe's obsession with the novel Flowers in the Attic. As the plan progresses the history class discusses slavery. Chloe makes a chance remark, about realizing that her friendship with Nadine, who is black, would not have been possible as she would have been a slave. A case of broken telephone creates a gossip ring that leads to Chloe's eventual downfall.
