THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST Wins the 2012 Montana Book Award

The Miseducation of Cameron Post By emily m. danforthCongratulations to Emily M. Danforth! Her book, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, just won the 2012 Montana Book Award.

When Cameron Post’s parents die in a car crash, her first reaction is not grief. Instead, it’s relief—they will never have to know that she was kissing a girl just hours before. But the sense of relief is fleeting, as she is forced to move in with her ultra-conservative aunt and well-meaning, but old-fashioned grandmother. When her aunt discovers the truth about her sexuality, she sends Cameron to a religious conversion camp in order to “fix” her, bringing Cameron face-to-face with the cost of denying her true identity.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a significant literary debut, perfect for 9th grade and up. Click on the picture above to begin browsing now.
