Annotation:
In this moving coming-of-age story set in the early 1990s, a girl who explores her sexuality finds herself at the mercy of religious extremists in a Christian school for troubled teens. Taking place over several years, the story opens just after 12-year-old Cameron has kissed her first girl and discovered that her parents have horribly died in a car accident. Sent to live in rural Montana with her very religious Aunt Ruth, Cameron learns to hide her feelings and experiences. But everything changes after she becomes involved with a sexy, popular cowgirl named Coley who has a boyfriend. Cameron must find a path for herself in the middle of a hostile culture and she must find out who she truly is.

Praise

"[This] is indeed an important book--especially for teens growing up today in communities that don't accept them for who they are. But it is also a skillfully and beautifully written story that does what the best books do: It shows us ourselves in the lives of others." - Malinda Lo 02/07/2012

"This finely crafted, sophisticated coming-of-age debut novel is multilayered, finessing such issues as loss, first love, and friendship." (starred review) 03/01/2012
