Lights. Camera. Action! Arthur Bean’s life has taken a turn for the adventurous — two girlfriends to deal with, and a blockbuster film to co-write, produce and direct. How crazy can one school year get?

Arthur and Robbie have called a truce now that the writing contest and school play are over…but plans go astray when Arthur’s new girlfriend Anila gets jealous of his friendship with Kennedy. And then there’s that little problem of the movie camera Arthur and Robbie borrowed to film their upcoming blockbuster movie.

As Arthur’s life goes off the rails all over again, laughs for the reader are right on track. Emails, doodles, texts, newspaper articles, AV Club rules (which Arthur and Robbie usually break) give the story the same engaging look as A Year in the Life of a (Total and Complete) Genius.

Stacey Matson has worked in a theatre program on Parliament Hill and written theatre pieces for the Glenbow Museum and for the All-Nations Theatre in Calgary. She recently completed her Master of Arts in Children's Literature at the University of British Columbia. This is her first novel in a planned trilogy. Stacey lives in Vancouver, BC.

Praise for A Year in the Life of a (Total and Complete) Genius:

“Irrepressibly charming. . . Give this to fans of Susin Nielsen’s Word Nerd.” —CBC Children’s Book Panel.

“At once funny, outrageous, thoughtful, and informative, this is a story with something for everyone, and Arthur’s is a voice readers won’t soon forget.” —The Manitoba Library Association
