Cameron's parents die in a car accident and her religious aunt becomes her guardian. When her aunt finds out about Cameron's proclivities, she immediately puts Cameron in a religious home that is meant to cure her of her 'illness'.
Cameron stays true to herself and what she knows to be an acceptable way of life, despite the pressures from staff and roommates at the religious house.
This is a teen book about tough topics that neither condemns the gay lifestyle nor the religious lifestyle. I thought it was really well done.
And just as an FYI, this book was a finalist for the William C Morris Debut Award.
