Description

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.

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.

Inspiring, Amazing, Necessary

I haven't read books in a while, I loved them as a child but as I grew up I stopped. This is essentially the first book that I bought/downloaded. This is coincidentally my first audio book, ever, and it was nothing short of satisfyingly fulfilling. It might seem trivial, a 22 year old writing a memoir, but it's a little more than that. In a wonderful way it offers you new perspectives, it's an opportunity for you to re-evaluate your life, where you are and what you're doing, whether it is what you want your life to be. Amazingly relayed by the author, so you know exactly what tone, emotion and feeling each word, sentence and paragraph should evoke. It's much like a roller coaster, a collection of emotions, happiness, sadness, pity, envy, joy etc in a unique way that makes you want to go out there.
I'd encourage everyone to get a copy, get a copy so that it can offer you the new perspective your life needs, whether you're feeling overwhelmed, that perhaps you can't go on any further doing what you're doing, or whether you need assurance, get a copy, listen/read the book and get the answer you need.
In retrospect, I was sad when it ended, but happy as to what I can take from it (the experience of the book) all.
I'm definitely looking at it all differently.

Inspiring.

Finished the same day I downloaded it. At times I smiled and other times I revisited my own past.

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!

Thank you Connor<3

I'm in love with your voice....
even if you say, it often breaks up.
I want to be me...but I'm not able to and it makes me so crazy...
I'm stuck in a bad time right now.
But you just spoke the words out I was thinking about LIFE.
I'm so down always because I'm feeling bad for everything...
I've a tough time...
I wan't to get out. Out of this room here...the room I must share with my older brother...
I want to get out of here.., but I must go to school...and everything....
I always silent and lonely...
My day is just:
1.getting up
2.go to school
3.come home
4.while doing homework, I'm crying
5.watch your videos, I'm smiling
6.listen to blue neighbourhood, while I'm dancing secretly in my room
7.cry myself to sleep....
(Sorry, for my bad english)

Für ein erstes Buch "fast" perfekt

Mir hat das Buch sehr gut gefallen.
Die verschiedenen Perspektiven auf ein Leben sind sehr interessant beschrieben.
Das Buch beinhaltet viele Denkanstöße und Ratschläge fürs Leben über die man allesamt nachdenken sollte.
An manchen Stellen ist es etwas langweilig und zieht sich über ein längeres Stück aber im gesamten blieb meine Aufmerksamkeit an Stelle. Gestaltungstechnisch bin ich sehr zufrieden, da es sein erstes Buch war.
Im gesamten würde ich das Buch jedem Fan und Memoiren-Liebhaber empfehlen
