Audible Editor Reviews

This is at once a moving and comforting coming-of-age audiobook by YouTube star and vlogger Connor Franta, in his memoir A Work in Progress. It documents the life of a young boy finding his feet in the world as an individual and as part of society. The ups and downs of Franta's life are covered, from his childhood through his teenage years, providing support to his millions of followers who struggle in their own experiences of growing up. This audio is hugely enjoyable for teenagers and adults alike. Available now from Audible.

Publisher's Summary

From YouTube star vlogger Connor Franta comes an audiobook 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. Listened to 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.

    "Beautiful"

    This book is for anybody and I mean anybody. With each spoken word filled with passion from Connor, you are able to see and feel the person behind the computer screen. Moments of laughter,sadness and accomplishment fill this book and I for one am in awe.
    Awe of the fact that he is able to express such deep thought in a way we,as an audience can relate to, you not only makes the book about himself but his audience and help them.
    From someone who has watched Connor on YouTube to see him write such a beautiful and well written book I can honestly say I have deep pride and admiration for this man.
    Thank you Connor, from myself and many others like me, this book has helped me realise my dreams and to live for the moment.
    Well done and congratulations on such an extraordinary achievement.

    "Inspirational"

    Listening to Connor's voice for over 3 hours has made me realise where I've been going wrong, and for so long.

    I feel I connected with the reason he wrote this book, I no longer feel stuck. His words and wisdom after only 22 years, is something that will never leave my ears.

    Thank you Connor.

    "Inspiring and Raw"

    I had no idea how much a simple book written by my role modle and inspiration (and favourite youtuber) could inspire me to go out an chase my dreams - even if i am 16 years old. The only this i can say is this book is raw and inspiring, and most - it speaks the truth.

    "Inspirational"

    Really can relate to his story I struggled with my sexuality in a really bad way but once i stopped caring or rather realized that other peoples opinions on my life don't matter i really felt amazing the best way id describe it is free. Think people like Connor who yes got lots of support when he came out but also had too deal with a massive amount of hate. Because of humans like connor franta I'm proud to be gay and always will be

    "Inspiring"

    I usually listened to this on the walk home from school and it made me come home with more motivation to do homework, a more positive attitude, and helped me to appreciate even the smallest things, like a cluster of flowers on a bush on the way home. I love Connor so much, not just his videos but as a person, and his creativity and passion and intelligence just all came together and was evident in his writing. I honestly am going to re-listen to this whenever I feel down. Thank you for this piece of art!

    ""A beautiful inspiration""

    This is now one of my favorite books. I watch all of Conner frantas videos and he is simply unique and inspiring. He is one of the few people in the world who have a clear understanding of priorities in life. This book perfectly displays humor, inspiring words to live by, and his own triumphs through life, for example, coming out. A work in progress is simply a beautiful inspiration.
