The Miseducation of Cameron Post Book Trailer from emily danforth on Vimeo.
"[An] ambitious literary novel, a multidimensional coming-of-age...There is nothing superficial or simplistic here, and Danforth carefully and deliberately fleshes out Cam's character and that of her family and friends. Even the eastern Montana setting is vividly realized." --Booklist, starred review
"Runs the gamut from heart-rending to triumphant, epic to mundane...Carefully crafted symbols provide a backbone for the story's ever-shifting array of characters and episodes, each rendered in vibrant, almost memoir-like detail...Handled with particular nuance...Even when events take a dark and gut-punchingly inevitable turn, the novel remains at its heart a story of survival and of carving out space even in a world that wants one's annihilation. 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...Danforth's story gains even more complexity and dimension from [a] shift [halfway through], further developing the political, religious, and coming-of-age themes introduced in the first half...Cam's reckoning with her sexuality develops through a series of vignette-like early chapters that focus on the girls that come and go in Cam's life...creating narrative moments that will have teens rereading the sexy bits like an earlier generation did with Judy Blume's FOREVER." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
