Title: The Miseducation of Cameron Post
Author: Emily Danforth
Pages: 466 Pages
The night Cameron Post’s parents died, her first emotion was relief. Relief they would never know that hours earlier, she’d been kissing a girl.
Now living with her conservative Aunt in small-town Montana, hiding her sexuality and blending in becomes second nature to Cameron until she begins an intense friendship with the beautiful Coley Taylor.
Desperate to ‘correct’ her niece, Cameron’s Aunt takes drastic action.
Now Cameron must battle with the cost of being her true-self even if she’s not completely sure who that is.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a stunning and unforgettable literary debut about discovering who you are and finding the courage to live life according to your own rules.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a real eye-opener of a book. I’ve always known that the LGBT community have a hard time of things but what Emily Danforth has done is written a story that shows the truly insidious nature of what some families will do to make sure that their child stops ‘being gay’.
Whilst I enjoyed The Miseducation of Cameron Post I did find the story quite slow paced. It took me much longer than it normally would to read the whole book.
I would recommend this story though. It really does make you aware of how much being a lesbian or being gay is still seen as a negative thing in middle-America.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth is available now.
