If you’ve been keeping up with things in the YA world lately you’ve undoubtedly heard of the Cape Henlopen School Board’s decision to remove The Miseducation of Cameron Post by emily m. danforth from their summer reading list, citing “inappropriate language” as their reason, although more books on the list had such language as well. 

Today, they decided to abolish the entire summer reading list. 

emily m. danforth already wrote a wonderful letter to the school board about their decision to remove Cameron Post, in light of the fact that their citation of “inappropriate language” was probably not the real reason they had removed the book, and in fact decided to remove it because of the queer content.

As an author, as a reader, and as someone who identifies as queer, I abhor the school board’s decision. The list was made by people who know teenagers, know what they should read, and as Kelly Jensen put it, removing the entire list undermines the authority of those people. 

The Miseducation of Cameron Post is one of my all-time favorite books, guys. It’s an honest, absolutely moving portrayal of a lesbian teenager, it’s gorgeously written, and it’s the first LGBTQ YA book I’d read in a long time that felt really, truly authentic. 

So here’s the deal. I know what I’m doing is a drop in the bucket, but I want to give away a copy of Cameron Post. This is absolutely free, I’ll pay for shipping and everything. I want to get this book into the hands of someone who needs it like I did, because the Cape Henlopen school board sure as hell isn’t. 

The giveaway is below, on Rafflecopter. Enter. Spread the word about censorship, write a letter to the school board, buy Cameron Post and the other books on the list, support authors and decry censorship. Do whatever you can to support this wonderful book and the others on the list. 

It’s a drop in the bucket, sure, but it’s better than nothing at all.

Spoilers for the entire series, A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons in particular. One major spoiler for Season 3 of Game of Thrones in this part, specifically Episode 9: “The Rains of Castamere.” Kudos to the posters, especially tze, at the Westeros.org forums, who first pieced together this theory. The original threads can be read here and there.

the timid european ground squirrel, stopping to smell the daisies, photographed in vienna by julian rad, who explains, “you have to be at eye level with the squirrels. that means you have to lay on your stomach for quite a few hours in order to get them in front of your lens. you have to make yourself invisible. it is important that they have no indication you are there.” (see also: more precious lil woodland buddies)
