GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER FOR BEST MEMOIR/AUTOBIOGRAPHY

FORBES TOP 5 BREAKTHROUGH BOOK OF 2015

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

    I want to write a proper critique for this very special piece of literature. To start off, it isn’t the best of literature, many points are incoherent and connor jumps from one point to the other with almost no sense of order. That being said, I love the book for a very different reason. I like to consider myself a very well read person, but of the hundreds (or even thousands) of books I may have read, only 3 have made me cry, and this book is one of the ones that made me drop a tear or two. I have lived many of the stories connor describes, many of his feelings I have felt; and the precision with which he describes them is only remarkable, his brutal honesty on itself is a feat to be admired. While reading this book I have felt a different person, and yet I knew I was just finding myself; a feeling unlike any other, almost as though my mind didn’t fit my body, and my skin was an oppressing barrier. I jumped several times to hastily scribble ideas on a tored up piece of recycled paper, the last thing I wrote so happened to be the last words of the book, and yet I wrote them 60 pages before the ending. Definitely a beautifully presented book, a piece of visual art, and the edition and imagery is astounding, I have only to say that this book will certainly change my life (or at least the way I view it)
