Arthur Bean is ready to have the best year any eighth grader has ever had. The awesome zombie movie he's writing with BFF Robbie Zack is definitely going to be a blockbuster. He even has a girlfriend. Yes, that's right, a GIRLFRIEND! With everything lined up so nicely, he's sure his teachers will start to appreciate his true genius this year.
Except for the little problem of the movie camera Arthur and Robbie "borrowed" to film their upcoming blockbuster movie. And then Arthur's girlfriend gets jealous of his friendship with Kennedy. And there's the actual co-writing, producing, and directing of their film…Drama is definitely on the menu for this year. Arthur would just prefer it stay confined to his script.
