WDYMYNR: The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth

This week we're going to shed a little light on some books that we love that are a bit older, but still deserve all the love...

Teen reviewer and TAB member Anna shares pick today:


When Cameron Post hears her parents have both died in a car crash, she isn't sad or angry or anguished-- she's relieved. Because now she never has to admit to them that just hours before she was kissing a girl. 
But soon, she is forced to move in with her Ultra-Conservative Aunt Ruth and grandmother. She has to navigate the struggles of growing up lesbian without her parents in Montana in the 1990's.

I think this is a novel that many people would enjoy. The narration captured the small town's essence perfectly. While Cameron might not see herself as a role model, I thought she was very relatable. And through all the drama, Cam stays true to herself-- a lesson to live by.
