The Miseducation of Cameron Post
The Miseducation of Cameron Post | emily m. danforth
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.

I loved this book! It took me forever to read but I think that's because it took me on such an emotional rollercoaster of "what ifs" about my own life. I thought the writing was excellent. I do think that the Conversion Therapy center was a little mild from other stories I've read. I don't think the full horror of what goes on there was captured in this particular book. That's my only complaint.
#LitsyAtoZ #letterM

In all the holiday hub bub, I did manage to finish a few books. I wanted to share how much I really loved this one. In high school I became a very strident fundamental evangelical Christian and in the last 6 years I've been dismantling that harmful theology. This book made me ache over the things I used to believe.
It was intensely engaging prose all the way through. Cameron's story is raw and honest. Well written young adult fiction.

ohyeahthatgirl That's a hard journey, but as someone with experience, it's absolutely worth it. 7mo
SamanthaMarie @ohyeahthatgirl I'm a MUCH more loving and kind person now that I'm not worried about who is "in or out," "saved or unsaved," etc. It definitely messed with me especially early in my dating with my now husband. I could go on. But I'm so glad to hear you say that. ♡ 7mo

This was a great YA LGBTQ story, even though I did get grouchy about the pray-the-gay-away camp part. I read it on my kindle, but wow look at this gorgeous edition with rainbow sprayed edges 🌈 At some point I‘m going to have to order this amazingness.

Boxes, boxes everywhere!

I‘m having a hard time with the second half of this book. I have a huge aversion to people shoving religion at me. Who says it‘s sinful to have same sex attractions? The idea that anyone believes this really pisses me off. Pray the gay away camps are the biggest crock, as are any families who can‘t accept their kids for who they are. 🤬🤬🤬

Poor Cam. I want to break in and rescue the whole band of kids. 🏳️‍🌈proud.

Soubhiville On the other hand, the author did a great job, because I have major feelings right now. (Or is that the impending move anxiety talking...?) 10mo

#BookMail Pt3 from today was this Special Pride Edition Of this classic #queerbook by Emily.M.Danforth. Cameron Post is a normal American small town girl until her mother dies and all she can think about is that she now doesn‘t have to tell her that she likes to kiss girls. Sent to live with her ultra conservative aunt, she falls for a cute girl in town and gets sent to one of those “re education” camps to Pray the gay away. Coz that works.🤨

Hooked_on_books That rainbow edge is fabulous! 11mo

After seeing the trailer for the movie, I really wanted to read the book. Such a great piece of contemporary literary fiction with a great LQBTQ+ character. I love that it's about a girl. I feel when it comes to LQBTQ books the main characters are guys - which I could possibly be wrong about - and it's rare to read a story where the main character is a girl struggling with her sexual orientation. #lqtbqplus #youngadult #readya #summerreads

So, look. I really liked this book. Like, wanted to start it over immediately after finishing it—- that type of like. And it‘s been a while since I‘ve felt that way about a book. The end was a little abrupt and not what i was expecting, but overall a very good book. Will be reading again.

This coming of ‘gayage‘ novel set in 90s-era Montana moved me very much. It also hurts to think about how many states still allow conversion therapy of LGBTQ kids to occur. Glad I finally got around to reading it.

I‘m having a hard time figuring out how to rate this book. The story is an important one to tell, one I wished I had read as a teen, but the first half dragged on and on. The second half was much better and I‘m glad I stuck with it.

SinkLikeTheMoon I'll have to give this one a second shot. The first half dragged so much I never made it to the second. Glad I wasn't the only one struggling with it. 13mo

Being stuck inside thanks to the resurgence of winter isn‘t so bad when you‘ve got a wonderful new book to read.

Also, I‘ve discovered that all the books I‘ve read (outside of school) so far have been by women this year sooo I‘m going to try to keep that up for the remainder of the year (with the planned exception of a friend‘s book that comes out in September). Let me know your recommendations!
