Middle School #8: Dog's Best Friend

A dog-eat-dog world needs a dog walker like Rafe, right? Or is he the one being led? Life at middle school is finally starting to seem bearable – until Rafe spots his granny at the local soup kitchen, standing in the free-meal line. Bothers! To earn some extra cash, Rafe comes up with a smart plan: a dog-walking business. What could possibly go wrong? He’ll build a huge money-making empire, and use any spare dough to buy his own WormHole Deluxe Multi-Platform GameBox! That is, until two terrible twins launch the Great Dog War by stealing his clients. Plus, his bratty kid sister Georgia (ugh) has skipped a grade – so now she’s in all of Rafe’s classes. Throw this kid a bone!
