Connor Franta to reveal all in a new book later this year

YouTube sensation Connor Franta will offer a look into his “internal life” for his second book Note to Self.

The 24-year-old has taken a more diary-like approach to writing this time out, and will chronicle the highs and lows of being a famous social media star.

“I think it’s time to show you my insides,” he said about the book. “Show you my light and hold your hand in my dark; take you to my highest highs and right down to my lowest lows.”

Connor will explore his battles with clinical depression, social anxiety and self-love through a series of short stories, poetry and letters to himself.

The book’s aim is to lay bare his authenticity in age where lives have become increasingly edited – especially on social media.

Note to Self is available to pre-order now and will be released on 18 April.

It serves as the follow-up to his debut book A Work In Progress, which was released back in 2015.
