Publisher 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.

No Work Need Here!

Not a whole lot is too be said about Connor Franta's debut Memoir "A Work In Progress," now that isn't because it's bland, boring or plan but because it's just simply amazing and there is no real other way to put it. It's humorous and is very inspiring + the physical copy is absolutely beautiful and I'm shore the digital will be too.
