A new year, a new controversy, and another way to make Kennedy mad . . .

It's Arthur Bean's lat year of junior high, and he finally has his own column in the school newspaper: Just One Guy's Opinion. But his co-editor Kennedy is mad at him (not that he still wants to be her boyfriend) and his friend Robbie has moved to another city. Now he's on a collision course with the new principal over censorship. Can Arthur make it to grad without starting a revolution?

The hilarious sequel to A Year in the Life of a (Total and Complete) Genius and Scenes from the Epic Life of a Total Genius.
