Emily M. Danforth's debut novel tells the story of a young girl growing up in rural Montana after the tragic death of both of her parents. Coming to understand her sexuality is further complicated when her conservative aunt discovers her relationship with her best friend and Cameron is sent away to a religious conversion therapy school. Danforth handles the difficulties of family life and identity with nuance and grace in this beautifully rendered coming of age tale.
