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.

It was so, so great. Thank You

Thank you so much, Connor. You've written this book and it's helped me, as well as other, so much. The physical copy is great, but the Audiobook is so much better, your voice actually reading what you've written to us. Thanks. A Lot.
