This is the story of Heather Chang. A fiery, quick-tempered high school student who lives in the fictional small town of Gillwood, Florida. She enjoys reading, creating memes, and getting revenge at anyone who wrongs her in any way.
One sunny morning at Gillwood High, her whole world changes forever when she’s privately approached by Jacob Boruta, a malicious computer hacker and classmate. She catches his eye, and he makes a grand romantic gesture to show his affection, despite never having met her before. It all turns sour when Jacob makes an inappropriate, sexual advance towards her. She grows angry, violently rejects him, and takes the opportunity to record and humiliate him for what he’s done. When she exposes what he did online, Jacob plots revenge. He hacks into Heather’s phone, steals her nude pictures, and leaks them all over social media in order to completely shame and degrade her. Soon after, Heather begins receiving a barrage of toxic and verbal abuse online. This leaves Heather furious and seeking revenge herself. She enlists the help of a sympathetic athlete named Eddy and together they plan to make Jacob’s life absolutely miserable.
