The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth
Worth Reading, Miseducation, Book Worth, Young Adult, Cameron Post, Montana Ranch, Danforth, Ya Book, Emily
Just finished The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Read it. It was one of those books where I devoured the first half in 24 hours but when I found myself coming closer and closer to the end, I'd read maybe a paragraph per sitting, absorbing every detail that I possibly could. And now that I'm done, I feel almost empty-like I've lost a good friend. YA Book of the year in my opinion.
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth - In the early 1990s, when gay teenager Cameron Post rebels against her conservative Montana ranch town and her family decides she needs to change her ways, she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center.

Never Fall Down: A Novel by Patricia McCormick ($9.99) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0068M2GK6/hpb2-20/ASIN/B0068M2GK6 This is the powerful and moving story of Arn, and his experiences during the time when the Khmer Rouge was in power in Cambodia. - Very well written and informative. - McCormick uses his own distinctive voice to make this narrative all the more powerful and convincing.
Never Fall Down / Patricia McCormick. Monica says she'd recommend this novel that brings together memoir and historical fiction "about the life of Cambodians during the Khmer Rouge. It is a sad, but interesting story. I really liked it."
This National Book Award nominee from two-time finalist Patricia McCormick is the unforgettable story of Arn Chorn-Pond, who defied the odds to survive the Cambodian genocide of 1975-1979 and the labor camps of the Khmer Rouge. Based on the true story of Cambodian advocate Arn Chorn-Pond, and authentically told from his point of view as a young boy, this is an achingly raw and powerful historical novel about a child of war who becomes a man of peace.

Dragonswood (Wilde Island Chronicles #2) by Janet Lee Carey
The astonishing novel Brave New World, originally published in 1932, presents Aldous Huxley's legendary vision of a world of tomorrow utterly transformed. In Huxley's darkly satiric yet chillingly prescient imagining of a "utopian" future, humans are genetically designed and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order.
