Loved Call Me By Your Name? Then dive into The Miseducation of Cameron Post, soon to be a major film starring Chloe Grace Moretz - winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance film festival.

The night Cameron Post's parents died, her first emotion was relief. Relief they would never know that hours earlier, she'd been kissing a girl. Now living with her conservative Aunt in small-town Montana, hiding her sexuality and blending in becomes second nature to Cameron until she begins an intense friendship with the beautiful Coley Taylor. Desperate to 'correct' her niece, Cameron's Aunt takes drastic action.

Now Cameron must battle with the cost of being her true-self even if she's not completely sure who that is. The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a stunning and unforgettable literary debut about discovering who you are and finding the courage to live life according to your own rules.]

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Danforth's narrative of a bruised young woman finding her feet in a complicated world is a tremendous achievement: strikingly unsentimental, and full of characters who feel entirely rounded and real... An inspiring read.' - Sarah Waters, author of Tipping the Velvet and Fingersmith

'If Holden Caulfield had been a gay girl from Montana, this is the story he might have told-it's funny, heartbreaking, and beautifully rendered.' - Curtis Sittenfeld, bestselling author of Prep and American Wife

'An important book - one that can change lives.' - Jacqueline Woodson, award-winning author of Brown Girl Dreaming 

'Rich with detail and emotion, a sophisticated read for teens and adults alike.' - Kirkus starred review

'The story is riveting, beautiful, and full of the kind of detail that brings to life a place (rural Montana), a time (the early 1990s), and a questioning teenage girl.' - Publishers Weekly starred review

'A beautiful read for a long summer holiday, and a much needed portrayal of lives so seldom seen in YA.' - Shiftworker, Shift

Review of the film: 'A lot of times when a movie is called "important" it's hiding the fact that it is boring or dated or loaded with fake drama. Not here. The Miseducation of Cameron Post will be a panacea for gay kids for years to come, so for that our prayers have been answered.' - Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian

“Long and somewhat difficult, but worth it ”

I did enjoy this book - the reason I've given it 3 stars and not 4 is because I feel that it's unnecessarily lengthy. Danforth can take an incredibly long time to say something quite simple, or develop a... More

“An important coming of age novel about a young lesbian in rural USA”

The Miseducation of Cameron Post has been a book on my radar for several years. Published in 2012 in America, it never made its way over to our shores and not seeing it on the bookshelves meant I never remembered to... More

“5/5”

This was an intense read dealing with current topics. The idea of being yourself is not always easy especially for Cameron.
