Best friends, social trends and occasional murder. It's September, 1989, when smart girl Veronica Sawyer is taken into the tight circle of Westerberg High's popular girls known as the Heathers (because, duh, they're all named Heather) on account of her uncanny forgery skills. But with social popularity comes a level of sadistic cruelty that Veronica can't stomach, and she quietly defects from the inner circle. Hooking up with moody bad boy Jason J.D. Dean, she becomes complicit in his homicidal takedowns of the school's popular crowd. Wickedly funny, oddly romantic, relentlessly intense and occasionally powerful, this is a surprisingly truthful parable for anyone who's ever been in love, in trouble, or in high school.
