Library Adminno Comments Books Teen Book Reviews Teens A Work in Progress by Connor Franta Reviewed by Emily Brenner A Work in Progress is a heartfelt memoir written by Connor Franta at twenty-two years old. As a YouTuber, Franta has faced a plethora of struggles such as friend drama, sexuality, labels, finding happiness, and finding his true identity in the midst of all the madness—fairly common struggles in today’s society and relatable to a range of readers. Throughout the book, Franta recalls specific memories and events from his past to tell his story and follows with pieces of advice and wisdom he’s learned through the years. His compelling story and the artistic nature of the book draws readers deeper into his story. As an avid photographer as well, Franta also includes multiple photographs from his childhood to tell the story, as well as more recent photographs he’s taken on his adventures across the country. I would recommend this book because the advice given is relative to today’s world and makes you question the way you live your life. Are you truly happy? Are you living to your highest potential? This biography changes your perspective on the world and your outlook on life overall. If you enjoy this book, I would recommend Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, a novel full of great life advice and a similar feeling. Franta has also just released another book titled Note to Self, where he dives deeper into his individual struggles and how best to deal with them. Check it out: Share It !
