The Miseducation of Cameron Post 


Emily M. Danforth

In 1993, a teenage girl is forced into a gay conversion therapy center by her conservative guardians.

The novel’s protagonist is Cameron Post, a 12-year-old Montana girl who is discovering her own homosexuality. After her parents die in a car crash, she lives with her conservative aunt and her grandmother. When the romantic relationship she develops with her best friend is discovered she is sent to a conversion camp.

According to Danforth, the novel was influenced by the 2005 Zach Stark controversy, where teenager Zach Stark was sent to a conversion camp run by Love In Action after coming out to his parents. The story is set in the author’s hometown, Miles City, Montana, in the 1990s.
