The Burn Book
The Burn Book is a type of journal in which negative opinions about individuals are recorded in private. Materials used to make one can include paper, tape, pencils and pictures – it’s best if this remains strictly private.
The Plastics use this Burn Book to spread vicious rumors and gossip about other girls at their school, written so it appears as though each of the Plastics members are writing directly about themselves.
Other girls also write harmful remarks about Cady and other teachers in the book – specifically math teacher Ms. Norbury who had also been subject to Cady’s defamatory comments.
Noteworthy is the fact that The Plastics created their Burn Book rather than writing directly themselves; thus giving an inaccurate picture of who these girls really are, yet giving us insight into who they were as individuals.
