I loved the ending.

A beautifully written coming of age story about finding yourself, even when everyone around you tells you you're wrong. Cameron Post is a wonderfully complicated and fully fleshed out character, who you alternately cringe at and root for. Yes, this book tells the story of a lesbian teenager in Montana, but it is a story that many people struggling with their identity may relate to.

Basically the story of Cameron's sexuality, from experimenting with her childhood best friend to going to conversion camp. There's some angst, but Cameron is low-key bad ass and there's a handful of sweet little gay scenes. It's an easy read, as Emily's writing doesn't get too heavy, and Cameron is realistic and relatable.

Cameron Post is my forever favorite character in the entire freaking universe. She glides through the rough, unforgiving story, finding happiness and love in the small glints of sunlight through the shrouded windowpane. Gotta love it, what can I say?

I thoroughly appreciated the change of perspective from the traditional ya novel. There are an abundance of YA novels that I find difficult to read because they are so full f teenage angst that they make me feel slightly ill. I've been there but I no longer relate. They are books for teenagera. Then there are books like The Miseducation of Cameron Post. It's just a great story told well. Everyone can relate in one way or another because the author tapped into those things that make us human.

One of the loveliest books I've ever read- made me cry. Highly recommend.

This book is about: bubble gum — stolen just for the thrill of it; Ferris wheels — and a wild emotional ride; watching 99 cent video rentals — and searching for characters and stories that represent a queer identity; discovering dinosaur bones on a Montana ranch — and how that can change a friendship; altering a Victorian dollhouse with found objects — and constructing a sense of self; summers spent swimming in a Montana lake — and jumping into the unknown; drinking Schnapps (and kissing girls) in an abandoned hospital; Falling in love with a cowgirl — and what happens when people who disapprove find out; and an earthquake that reshapes the landscape — and experiences that reshape people. It's my favorite novel, and I think everyone should read it.

It's very hard to give someone a brief summary of the book that fully covers the story. Cameron Post grows up in rural Montana and is a lesbian. That's the set up for the novel, and along Cameron's journey she struggles with this. The book is such a great example of LBGT life as a teenager, as other novels either overstate the hardships that comes with being gay or understate it. This novel was spot on.
