THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST
"Pray away the gay!" Nothing could be simpler, could it? Cameron's high-school days in rural 1990s America are drawing to a close. But when she's caught making out with another girl, her conservative guardians send her to a conversion therapy center, where discipline and Christian rock songs are supposed to put her on the correct path. Based on the novel by Emily Danforth.
