The Miseducation of Cameron Post - Emily M. Danforth

This book has been recommended to me so many times I can't even remember them all, so I finally decided to give it a go. I can see why people are so fond of this book, and why it's recommended as one of the best LGBTQ+ books out there, but I wasn't really a fan.

 

I found it pretty difficult to really care about the story at first, but it got better about halfway through. The ending was really unsatisfying, however, and I don't feel like anything was really resolved. I also found it really hard to relate to Cameron, which made it rather hard to care what was happening to her. 

 

That said, this book was well written and neither over nor underestimated the reader's intelligence. It was fairly easy to read, but not so easy that I found myself completely zoning out. Overall it was a quick, interesting read. 

 

Basically: I'm glad I read it, but I probably won't read it again.
