Gordon Korman meets Word Nerd in this totally (and completely) genius debut!

Arthur Bean, soon-to-be a rich and famous author, has set two goals for himself: to win the school writing contest and to win the heart of his secret crush, Kennedy. But his life has had some major twists and turns lately, and the recent loss of his mother definitely complicates things.

Arthur is in turns outrageous, defiant, and unintentionally hilarious as we peek over his shoulder at his reading journals, notes from his long-suffering teachers, his offbeat articles for the school newspaper - even the emails he sends to writing partner Kennedy. A Year in the Life of a Total and Complete Genius is a fresh and funny story about a boy whose bad luck can't dampen his spirit - or his love of writing.

This book was AMAZING! I love all the drama Arthur goes through, and once I started reading it I couldn't stop. I'm over the moon, that you wrote a sequel, and that book #3 comes out in September. This is an awesome book.

Loved this book! Witty with a very interesting, contemporary style. Really gets into the head of the main character, Arthur Bean. Great for anyone about age 10 up. I'd love to read more books about Bean.
