Derek and his friends have been invited to a fancy mansion in Malibu for a fun filled weekend - the catch is, Derek's mom is dog sitting a Shih Tzu name Poufy who has an Instagram following. It's Derek's responsibility to make sure she gets posted everyday, and that her grooming regimen is followed. But when a forest fire threatens the Malibu community, everyone must evacuate, and a weekend of luxury turns into an overnight stay at the local high school. 

I really love this series - this is #8 - Derek gets into the most ridiculous trouble or is picked on for random reasons, middle school kids will certainly relate to the online bullying, the memes and the social media. I love recommending this series and the latest installment is a fun, timely read.
