Coming of age just means that transition from teenage to adult. The YA Contemporary sort of encompass a lot of those books. A story about a teenage character who is finding themselves and becoming an adult. Here is Goodreads Definition:

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.

I know they say typically males in their mid teens, but I think it is the same with stories for female characters.

Thanks All! BTW - I really enjoy challenges because it makes me dig through the books I all ready have on my kindle to find the one that fits the challenge, and I end up reading books that I probably wouldn't read other wise.

I whole heartedly agree!!!! I especially love the letter challenges because then I look at books I never would have. It also shows weird traits.....like I tend to read a lot of books that start with " B"!!! Lol!!


message 49: by Vega_girl (new)

Vega_girl | 6624 comments And none with the letter "o" !!! This one is killing me!!

That is so funny that you say that, because I noticed the same thing about books that start with the letter "B". It's a popular letter for books to start with.
