Coming Of Age

A coming-of-age story is a genre of literature that focuses on the growth of a protagonist from youth to adulthood ("coming of age").
Coming-of-age stories tend to emphasize dialogue or internal monologue over action, and are often set in the past. The subjects of coming-of-age stories are typically males in their mid teens.
Themes of maturation, acculturation, loss of innocence, wisdom or acumen, and worldliness are often present.
