Book Club: Week Three


     "When Cameron Post's parents die suddenly in a car crash, her shocking first thought is relief. Relief they'll never know that, hours earlier, she had been kissing a girl. But that relief doesn't last, and Cam is soon forced to move in with her conservative aunt Ruth and her well-intentioned but hopelessly old-fashioned grandmother. She knows that from this point on, her life will forever be different."
Introduction
     I would first like to start off by saying that this book is wonderful. Go read it right now. The story follows a young girl who is coming to terms with her sexuality, spanning over many years in Cameron's life, which would make sense as this book is a whopping 470 pages long. Despite the almost neverending quality to this book, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The Miseducation of Cameron Post is a story about discovering who you are, perfect for anyone in search of the courage to embrace their own sense of self. 
***SPOILER ALERT***
     Now for those of you have read the book, what did you think? Do you strongly disagree with my love for this novel? I enjoyed this book almost start to finish. The 100 or so pages about Promise got a little boring, but otherwise I thought this was a fantastic book. I'm almost sad that I'd never heard of this book before. Like I just feel as though it deserves to be read and raved about. Maybe it's the strong homosexual aspect. Hahah, this wasn't a problem for me though. In fact, it mostly just made me want to make out with this girl. I can understand why some people would have a problem with it though. Was it a problem for you? What are your opinions on the topic on same sex relationships? Obviously everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I just want to make it clear that I 100% support homosexuality. My own light on this topic just made me hate certain characters in the book. Like Lydia, and Ruth as well.. though I know she was totally dying. Whatever. I just was baffled by the endless one-on-ones. Like I'm sure those types of places must have existed (and maybe they still do), but I just felt like they were trying to brainwash those poor kids. Obviously you can see that with Erin, OH AND MARK. Agh, Mark. Poor Mark. 
     I suppose I should get back to the book. Things I hated: the length of this book. Things I enjoyed: everything else. Please do excuse my rambling in the previous paragraph. I only finished this book about 20 minutes ago and my emotions are still a little raw. What did you think of The Miseducation of Cameron Post? What did you like and dislike?
Summary
     Overall I rate this book 5.7 tulips out of 6 tulips. I'm only taking points off for the length of this book; some of it definitely could have been edited out. Everything else was wonderful. I really felt like I watched the story while it was unfolding. It made me cry, laugh, and want to be a lesbian. I would definitely recommend this book.
