Janice Avery is a bully. She is verbally abusive to other kids, she steals Twinkies from lunches, and she is not afraid to physically beat somebody up. Jess and Leslie decide to turn the tables on Janice Avery and publicly humiliate her. The catch is that they have to figure out how to do it without letting anybody know it was them.

"We gotta get her without her knowing who done it."

If Janice Avery figures out that Jess and Leslie did something to embarrass her, she will beat the two of them up.

The plan that Jess and Leslie come up with is devious. They write a love letter to Janice Avery from Willard Hughes (the boy that Janice Avery likes). Janice, of course, is thrilled with the letter and tells a bunch of people about it. By the end of the day, Janice figures out that Willard didn't write the note. She is incensed at the fact that she is now the laughingstock of the school.
