The Miseducation of Cameron Post
- Written by: Emily M. Danforth
- Narrated by: Beth Laufer
- Length: 14 hrs and 17 mins
Cameron Post feels a mix of guilt and relief when her parents die in a car accident. Their deaths mean they will never learn the truth she eventually comes to - that she's gay. Orphaned, Cameron comes to live with her old-fashioned grandmother and ultraconservative aunt Ruth. When she’s eventually outed, her aunt sends her to God’s Promise, a religious conversion camp that is supposed to “cure” her homosexuality. At the camp, Cameron comes face to face with the cost of denying her true identity.

I loved this book so much, being bisexual there were things I related to and things that got me thinking. I think it was an interesting representation of lgbt youth in settings that are more conservative. I highly recommend this book.
