Coming Of Age

What Is Coming of Age? :

   Coming Of Age is when a young person's transitions from their childhood to their adulthood. So, for coming of age a young adult undergoes some situation and/or inner turmoil in his/her life, which helps them with their growth and development as a human being.Some young adults come to realization of reality when they face cruelty in the world, death, racism, violence and hatred. While others deal with friends,family and community issues.Some Books Are great for coming of age as a novel. Like the following:
  • The Catcher In The Rye
  • To Kill A Mocking Bird
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
  • The Giver
  • The Hobbit
  • The Outsiders
  • The Bluest Eye
  • The Girl Who Fell From The Sky
     And much More Books. But One Book that i read What The Girl Who Fell From The Sky. The book was filled with a lot of situations that could of brought my main character to her coming of age. For one she had to deal with living in a new home with her grandmother. She realy didnt have much memory of ehat had happened to her mom, dad and brother. SHe also felt like a loner in the story. She was different than everyone else, because of the way she looked. She was the only girl with blue eyes and brown skin. yes, my main character was lost, but she knew for sure that she was black. She went through most of the changes teenage girls do at her age. School, boys, friends and foes, family problems, and that lust to be loved for who they really are.
   Each of these book tells a story. The story of some kids life that started off normal, But dramatically changed because of an issue that happened to them. And with that situation they came into realization of the world around them. They became a bit wiser,  and a step closer into adulthood.
