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 10 minutes


From YouTube star vlogger Connor Franta comes a book that grows out of his massive social media outreach (specifically Tumblr & Instagram). This is a small book of postcards, notes, texts, tweets, journal entries, emails, letters, etc. that charts his coming of age. In the postcards Franta answers questions from fans or relating anecdotes about the things that drive and influence him. The book tells a coherent narrative about 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 aged 12-18 who are growing up and establishing their individuality. A cross between an essay collection and a coming-of-age memoir, told in brief, the book is divided into sections, with each section 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. :)
