Staff Reviews


Reading about a girl named Cameron Post is like offering a hug to an old friend who doesn’t remember your face. Stay with me.. It’ll make sense in a moment.. You crave to say “Hi, how are you?” But they’re hesitant to hug you back because to them you’re a stranger and they don’t want to be a part of a stranger's world. It hurts that you can’t convince them of the good you have in your heart and the pure intentions you have for them. But they’re reluctant.. Because to them.. You’re dangerous. That’s how I felt about reading the life of this character through her eyes. She is the old friend who has a difficult time with trust, while the Reader wants to protect her and nurture her and just give her a big ol’ hug. — Ashley Newberg

Description


Set in rural Montana in the early 1990s, Emily M. Danforth's The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a powerful and widely acclaimed YA coming-of-age novel in the tradition of the classic Annie on My Mind.

Cameron Post feels a mix of guilt and relief when her parents die in a car accident. Their deaths mean they will never learn the truth she eventually comes to--that she's gay. Orphaned, Cameron comes to live with her old-fashioned grandmother and ultraconservative aunt Ruth. There she falls in love with her best friend, a beautiful cowgirl. When she's eventually outed, her aunt sends her to God's Promise, a religious conversion camp that is supposed to "cure" her homosexuality. At the camp, Cameron comes face to face with the cost of denying her true identity.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a stunning and provocative literary debut that was a finalist for the YALSA Morris Award and was named to numerous "best" lists.
