When Cameron's parents die in a car crash, her first thought is relief they won't know she kissed a girl.

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. I found the pacing of this book very well thought-out. From Cameron discovering that she's gay to her time at the gay conversion therapy center, Danforth spent time allowing the story to unfold in a true and honest way. Imagery transports the reader to Montana in the 1990's. So much so that you can almost smell the haybales, cornfields, and dusty barns. For fans of honest LGBTQ fiction, this is a must read!
