The Miseducation of Cameron Post

by Emily M. Danforth

Ref: 13782

A beautifully constructed coming-of-age novel. Deft storytelling combines with skilfully drawn characters, not least of which is the loveable, recently orphaned, Cameron Post, a 12-year-old discovering her sexuality in a small conservative town in 1990s Montana, USA. Sent by her religious aunt to a 'conversion' camp, creepily called 'Promise Camp', Cameron, against all the odds, merely blossoms into a confident young woman. When the publisher rep. gave us a sample to review, she described it as "the best YA book I've read". We couldn't agree more. Our own in-house reviewer called it "Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit- writ large!" A wonderfully 'grownup' (but age appropriate) read for a young teen. Age 14+, Paperback 470pp
