1. Shanyn @ Chick Loves Lit says: “The story that Emily Danforth has created is epic. Not epic in that there are dragons and tsunamis and swords, but epic in a contemporary sense. Which isn’t a word I often use to describe contemporary. A story that is timeless.” Read the full review

2. Candace @ Candace’s Book Blog says: “This book was quietly beautiful. It had many passages that really moved me, words that really stuck in my head and felt so very perfect. I found myself captivated by Cameron Post and her life as it felt so very similar to my own as a teenager…it took me back to my teenage years more than probably any other contemporary I’ve read.” Read the full review

3. Megtao @ Coffee & Wizards says: “The Miseducation of Cameron Post manages to at once satisfy and leave the reader thinking and wondering and wanting for more. I think this is the sign of an excellent novel.” Read the full review

4. April @ Good Books & Good Wine says: “It is one of those books that reminds me why I read young adult books — it is compelling, yet also allows you to walk in someone else’s shoes for just a little bit.” Read the full review

5. Wendy @ The Midnight Garden says: “It’s a pleasure to be lulled into the slow rhythm of the author’s words and to enjoy the moments of stillness and spontaneity throughout the entire story.” Read the full review

6. Norah @ BookReporter says: “The Miseducation of Cameron Post, with its small-town, late-20th-century setting, will remind teens and adult readers alike how far things have come — and how far they have yet to go.” Read the full review

7. Nina @ Escape in a Book says: “There’s really nothing I can say here that will do this amazing novel justice. The Miseducation of Cameron Post is an incredibly well written debut from Emily M. Danforth, with one of the most controversial plots I’ve read in a long time. This is the kind of book that will inspire strong opinions and loud discussions, and hopefully remind us all to be a little more open and understanding to the people around us.” Read the full review

9. Lori @ Pure Imagination says: “I loved The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth, and I don’t think that I can possibly explain all the reasons why I loved it. You’re just going to have to trust me. Honestly, I will read anything that Emily M. Danforth writes in the future. Her writing is lush and beautiful. Her characters are so realistic that they have been lingering in my mind for days. This is a superb debut…” Read the full review
