Get yourself a copy, and buckle up for a great time.

Main salts in plenty of modern touches (eg spibots, drones, computer technology) that will fascinate younger readers, alongside timeless themes of being a youngster, having good friends and adventures, and being worried about how you're seen by others. Just a great read, whether you're a keen kid or an adult who wants to mix up your menu.

Have a load of tissues for the laughter and time to read it from beginning to end. It is so hard to put down but even harder to do the housework and hang out the washing while trying to read it!
