    This assignment is an extension of the topic "coming of age" that my students should have addressed, and generally did (to varying degrees of success) in the Socratic Seminar of the previous lesson. I begin with the powerpoint on the concept of coming of age, pausing on the definition. I ask my students to name any books they have read or films.   I love coming of age books like "Summer Sisters" by Judy Blume or "Best Friends" by Martha Moody. Can you think of any good books that follow the lives of women from childhood or their teen years? I love reading at the beach and I want to start a list.

      Coming March 3, Chain of Gold, the first book of the Last Hours series (TLH) The Last Hours is a brand-new trilogy set in in Edwardian London. It follows the children of characters from The Infernal Devices, though you can certainly read it without knowing those books.. Cordelia Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, a warrior trained since childhood to battle demons.   The coming-of-age story isn't new, but a couple of new novels based on this theme stand out — mostly for good reasons. First is Susan Gregg Gilmore's light-as-air novel, Looking for Salvation at.

      Now, Perrotta is out with a new coming-of-age tale, “Mrs. Fletcher,” about a mother and her son who’s gone off to college, and the sexual boundaries both explore. Take a look at the Walmart Books Best Sellers section. You'll find modern classics such as Game of Thrones or the Harry Potter books and books that are the basis for movies such as A Wrinkle in Time. This is a good place to start your search for your next book. Books for Every Age.
