Description

See below for English description.

Arthur, qui sera bientôt un auteur riche et célèbre, s'est fixé deux objectifs : gagner le concours littéraire de l'école et conquérir le coeur de son béguin secret. Mais dernièrement, sa vie est chavirée par des événements importants et la perte de sa mère vient compliquer les choses de façon considérable.

La lecture du journal intime d'Arthur, les notes de ses enseignants éprouvés depuis longtemps et les articles à contre-courant que pond Arthur pour le journal de l'école, ainsi que les courriels envoyés à sa partenaire d'écriture (son béguin) nous font découvrir un Arthur extravagant, défiant et extrêmement drôle.

Ma vie de grand et parfait génie incompris est l'histoire rafraîchissante et hilarante d'un garçon dont le moral d'acier et l'amour de l'écriture demeurent inaltérables.

 

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 journals, notes from his long-suffering teachers, his offbeat articles for the school newspaper - even the emails he sends to his 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.

Original title: A Year in the Life of a Total and Complete Genius
