Reviewed by Isabelle Pierce as a sneak preview for Little Joe’s Books
The Miseducation of Cameron Post, by Emily M. Danforth, is about an orphaned lesbian growing up with her ultra homophobic aunt.  This book is very good because it is real.  It is not one of those books where love is always mutual and destroys all, because that is not how life works.  Cameron falls in love with a straight girl with a perfect boyfriend, who can not love her back because of her beliefs.  It is a story about being able to love yourself, despite all your flaws.  I recommend this book to lovers of realistic fiction, especially John Green readers.
