Question of the Day #1,439

Glamour posted 19 All-American Coming of Age Books, including two of my favorites, Are You There God? It's Me Margaret and The Outsiders.

What coming of age book impacted you as a kid?



  1. I didn't read much YA as a teen. But from that list I'd have to say To Kill A Mockingbird and Go Ask Alice had an impact. Another one I remember from that time was I Never Promised You A Rose Garden.

  2. Little Women--the idea of going out on my own, away from family to forge my way in the world like Jo did.

  3. 1971 Go Ask Alice. Maybe not coming-of-age but it stuck with me for a long time.
