APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Memoirs by YouTube stars are a thing these days, and in the case of Connor Franta’s A Work in Progress we're glad that’s the case. Hailing from a small town in Minnesota, Franta has amassed a global fanbase of more than 4 million. He’s charming, funny, kind and surprisingly perceptive and wise for a young twentysomething. His stories about his supportive family and creative aspirations—and his advice for living a full and happy life—are disarming and wonderfully uplifting.
