KAB Review: A Year In The Life of a Complete and Total Genius

Jackson says: 

A Year In The Life of a Complete and Total Genius captures the beginning chapters of young Artie Bean in his efforts to become a famed author. However, what with popular girl Kennedy, arch-nemesis Robbie Zack, middle school, writer's block, and altogether life, Artie will be facing an unsatisfactory downfall.

I love this book because it shows a relatable 21st century view, what with emails and the very currently awkward phases of middle school. This book ignites the essence of the creativity of children, and shows a modern touch of the whole book consisting of letters, assignments, and emails.
