When shes caught, it’s only by her mother’s proclaimed “grace of God” that she gets off with community service and enforced enrollment in the Sisters Fearfully and Wonderfully Made (SFAWM), a Christian support group for girls with absent or deceased fathers.Within weeks, though, comes news that tests Kaiya’s ability to endure the SFAWM program: Michael, the dad she hasnt heard from in years, is no longer the stereotypical “Deadbeat Daddy.” Not only has he carved out a prosperous career, hes in the news flaunting a “royal” family including children who are getting all the love never offered to Kaiya.Intent on revenge, Kaiya recruits two of her half-sisters – studios but steely LaShawn and recent dropout and teen mom Shequana – to make Michael pay for years of neglect. The girls quickly learn, though, that every vengeful step they take – whether crashing their royal sisters Sweet Sixteen party or attacking the computer systems at Michaels company – unleashes unforeseen consequences. When Michael responds by re-entering their lives in unexpected ways, Kaiya and her sisters arent sure whether to be hopeful or disturbed. Before long, Kaiya realizes that her plans for revenge are going to radically change her life – but probably not in the way she hoped.
