What the community says about The Miseducation of Cameron Post
- "This book provides some great perspective on a very relevant topic. It's a pretty standard coming of age story told through an unusual protagonist. The protagonist's experience of love, loss, and guilt is well portrayed and provokes much though and introspection. A great read.""not bad When Cameron Post’s parents die suddenly in a car crash, her shocking first thought is relief. Relief they’ll never know that, hours earlier, she had been kissing a girl."
- "I think this book is a bad example of non-binary and genderqueer characters. The girls obviously know they are girls, so I wouldn't even put this in that category. It would be a great book for anyone willing to read it and because it is so nicely written. I think it is about overcoming your fears and trying not to blame yourself for things that happen. "
- "I did not come across The Miseducation of Cameron Post until there was a controversy of the book being banned from a high school reading list for incoming ninth graders. Being a college student and English major, it immediately piqued my interest as to what all the commotion was. It was to the extent that the author of the book, Emily M Danforth, even came forth to make a statement. When that happened, I knew I had to read this book so I came to Amazon and placed an order right away. I have personally never read an LGBTQ novel before so I was apprehensive. I read the back and one of the first things it states is that her parents die when hours earlier she was kissing a girl. I hadn’t even cracked open the front cover and immediately the plot already had a twist. This book was already intimidating being almost 500 pages. However, once I started reading it, it was hard to put down. I took this book everywhere with me as I followed Cameron Post through her trials and tribulations of trying to be a lesbian who was also a part of the youth group in a conservative town until her eventual “punishment” of being sent away to a gay-away camp"
