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. 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.--From publisher description.

One of my favorite youtubers' book. Not so well written but all very true. One may also find the artsy part of the author. A very relaxing book

My friend recommended this book to me and told me it was so awesome that she was on her second time reading it. I was even more shocked when she said it was a biography since I was never really fond of them. Curious, I read the book and totally fell in love with his writing style. It's like he's talking to you! His words can be funny to serious but each chapter always ends in something inspirational. So I would definitely recommend anyone to read this book.

This book is nothing short of an amazing read. The way Connor writes is intriguing and you can tell he put his soul into this book. The stories are sweet and his words make you think about what you're doing with your life and what you want to do. It's nothing short of amazing and the actual physical book is beautiful, with the cover, colours and pictures inside. Impossible not to love.

Love Connor. Some youtubers really can't write books, but Connor definitely can. He is a role model for not just the LGBT community, but for all people. This book is one of my favorites.

Connor sets a great example for anyone - especially those just entering adulthood - struggling with their inner self while pursuing their dreams. He offers honest stories from his childhood, adolescence and young adulthood that many can relate to, and describes his path to success with YouTube and social media. A light, but inspiring read.
