Coming of Age

Back in January, Colleen at Chasing Ray posted a call for nominations of coming of age novels. She has compiled all the nominations into a list, organized by categories: "Books Girls Will Identify With Strongly," "Books Boys Will Identify With Strongly," "Boys & Girls Will Relate Equally," "Books GLBT YAs Will Identify With Strongly," "Mysteries/Thrillers That Include Characters Coming-of-Age," "Classics (Published before 1970)," "Graphic Novels," "Adult Books With Coming-Of-Age Themes," and yes, of course there is a category for "Science Fiction & Fantasy." This is a great list to find books that will appeal to a wide variety of teens and preteens.
