Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) is the daughter of zoologists who have brought her up in the African jungle and taught her themselves. Cady's parents decide it is about time she went to school, and so at the age of sixteen she enrolls at an Illinois high school. Cady discovers that surviving in the African jungle is very similar to surviving in the hormone-fueled jungle that is her high school. She nurses her first crush on Aaron Samuels, only to be told that there are unwritten social rules that make him out of bounds because he is Regina's ex-boyfriend. She learns that being good at math is not necessarily the key to social success. She also discovers that as she infiltrates the Plastics further, she actually becomes more like them and lets her inner 'mean girl' surface for the first time. However, she ultimately discovers that the life of a mean girl is not all that it is cracked up to be.
