A Work in Progress: A Memoir

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Connor Franta

Narrated By: Connor Franta

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: May 2015

Duration: 3 hours 9 minutes


From YouTube star vlogger Connor Franta comes an illustrated book that grows out of his massive social media outreach—filled with annotated postcards, notes, texts, tweets, journal entries, emails, and letters that chart his coming of age.

The front of the postcards feature his photos, both of himself and the things that inspire him, with the back answering questions from fans or relating anecdotes about the things that drive and influence him. Read from start to finish, the book tells a coherent narrative about Connor's coming-of-age and becoming an adult, and the ups and downs that are a part of that. From bullying to dating to leaving home, this is an inspirational book for fans who are growing up and establishing their individuality. The various modes of communication in the book also reflect changes in Connor’s own use of technology over the last several years. A cross between an essay collection and a coming-of-age memoir, told in brief, the book is divided into sections, each beginning with a short introduction about what’s affected Connor growing up. For example, a section on family begins with a short piece on Connor’s family and what he’s learned from them, so that his fans can get a greater insight into his life and learn something from it.

    Connor Franta is truly inspirational. He's only one year older than me, but has so much more wisdom and knowledge about the world than I do. Connor's story will motivate you to learn to accept yourself and follow your dreams. :)
