When Indie tries to outdo her siblings on the "Mehta Family Graph of Excellence," her push for an A in gym winds up earning Indie her first "F" ever. But when she tries to hide it from her parents long enough to pull up her grade, she gets caught, and they threaten to send her to a super-strict "boarding school for hooligans" in India. The more Indie learns about this place, the worse it seems. So bad, in fact, that it starts to sound a little... unbelievable. Meanwhile, when Marlon finds out his trend-setting new shoes are knockoffs, he loses his cool - so much so that he and his biggest fan, John Lu, actually switch roles, with John Lu getting all the girls and Marlon following after him like a lost puppy dog. How can a world so upside-down ever be righted again?
