Product Description

In this intimate memoir of life beyond the camera, Connor Franta shares the lessons he has learned on his journey from small-town boy to Internet sensation—so far. Here, Connor offers a look at his Midwestern upbringing as one of four children in the home and one of five in the classroom; his struggles with identity, body image, and sexuality in his teen years; and his decision to finally pursue his creative and artistic passions in his early twenties, setting up his thrilling career as a YouTube personality, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and tastemaker.

Exploring his past with insight and humor, his present with humility, and his future with hope, Connor reveals his private struggles while providing heartfelt words of wisdom for young adults. His words will resonate with anyone coming of age in the digital era, but at the core is a timeless message for people of all ages: don’t be afraid to be yourself and to go after what you truly want.

This full-colour collection includes photography and childhood clippings provided by Connor and is a must-have for anyone inspired by his journey.

My daughter loves this YouTuber and had to have this book. She said it was really inspirational. She struggles with depression and anxiety. It was nice to see another persons struggles and to see that everything does get better.

5.0 out of 5 stars I usually don’t read memoirs or biographies... 4 August 2016
By Reviewing Books Fabulously - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Now, I usually don’t read memoirs or biographies or anything like that, but I wanted to try this one out because I watch Connor’s YouTube videos. I am so glad I did.

Connor’s memoir is so intriguing and fascinating, and I enjoyed reading this book so much. I loved his quirky sense of humor in this book, and I loved reading about how he got to where he is. I read about his childhood, his family, his life crises, and his overall thoughts on life so far, and it was amazing. He had so many inspiring quotes and advice about life, friendship, and the overall look at things. For being so young, he certainly has very wise thoughts on how to take on life.

Now, when I got this book, it was Christmas, and I was so excited to read it that I finished it that day in about three hours. I’ve referred to it many times since then, and I always get more out of it every time. I’ve quoted his words many of times with confidence, and I love knowing that I got to know him just a little better since I do still watch his videos every Monday.

I recommend this book to everyone. It shows just how hard life is sometimes, and it gives you some laughs along with it.Connor Franta 3 This book will always be very dear to me, and I’ll read it over and over again just to know that I got absolutely everything out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Book of Empathy, Passion, and Insight! 9 April 2016

A Work in Progress- A Book You "Feel!"

By Connor Franta

There are most books that you read, but there are others that you feel. Connor Franta's
A Work in Progress , honestly, humanistically, and creatively, shows how a small town
Midwestern boy struggled through many challenges of growing up, identity, sexuality, and
loneliness to help other people through humorous, motivational and artistically creative You Tube
videos.

If A Work in Progress could be read by everyone in the world, the world would be a
happier place! What I love immensely about Connor's writing is that his searches in life are not
about fame, money, or power. Connor Franta's ambitions are to help people find hidden talents
and abilities within themselves to make them feel happier and lead better lives! Connor's
passion for giving back to the community through his charity work, videos, and writings, and
doing the most good for the greatest number of people is echoed throughout his life's journey.
The reader "feels" and shares his life's journey's, failures, inbetweens, and successes, through Connor's poetic words of kindness and his passion for photography. Award winning photos compliment Connor's empathetic writings throughout the book.

A Work in Progress shows Connor Franta's masterful dedication to writing, photography,
compassion, and empathy. The reader feels and shares the warmth, humor, and wit of a true
artisan craftsman author, much wiser than his years, with a love of writing, creativity, and
innovative discovery. Connor Franta will motivate the reader to love life, find his/her passion,
and show how failures are necessary to make a person stronger. To quote Connor, "Let failure
be your teacher, not your judge."

I encourage everyone to read this book! You may discover a very special talent within yourself. Connor provides wonderful encouragement and understanding in helping the reader fulfill his/her dreams. This book might change your life!

From the design of the book to the words inside, this book is five stars. Each chapter is like a snapshot of his life with a moral or life lesson added in. It's inspiring and will make you laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Frantastic, Inspirational Book 25 April 2015
By justmyself - Published on Amazon.com

As soon as it was said that Connor was putting out a book, I knew I had to get it and I knew I was going to love it! But I never knew that i was going to love it so much. Life lessons are painted out like a picture from Connor's life. It is so well written that even when I know I should go to bed I want to just keep on reading, So I do.. even when I have to get up at 5 the next day. I am so extremely proud of Connor and his accomplishments and how far he's come, especially considering all he's been through.
This book is one of the best, most well thought out books, I have ever read.
And as a frantastic fan of Connor I couldn't be more proud.
You really get to see deeper into Connor's mind and life. You swim past what he shows in his 5 minute videos and you get to really see him for who he is. A normal person with an extraordinary message to get across. You get to see his relationships painted before you, and through that you see the importance of close true friends, and family. You will get inspired by this book. You will not only read the words, but realize that you can relate to the words that float on the pages of this book.
If your reading this trying to decide whether or not to buy this book, let me tell you something, it will be one of the most inspiring books you will ever read. And you will remember the lessons that it teaches.
It is worth every penny, and every second you spend reading it.
It's truly a work of art.
