Coming of age does not necessarily occur upon a set age but more upon circumstances in ones life.

My daughter entered with her friends, passing through the metaphorical door of womanhood, full of trepidation and excitement. The adults weren’t invited in until later. She asked them to lie down and close their eyes as she told a story about a baby girl in her mother’s womb who was visited by a woman dancing down to her on a moonbeam bridge. Soon, they were all on the trampoline, playing tag and truth - back, so easily, to being 11.

10 Coming-of-Age Books to Read No. You really can't have a coming-of-age roundup without mentioning Judy Blume. Bone is the illegitimate daughter of a 15-year-old mother in the '50s in South Carolina.

10 Coming-of-Age Books to Read Now. By Jessica Grose. Though this is one of Blume's allegedly "adult" novels (like the amazing Smart Women, which is about '80s divorcees in Boulder who wear a lot of turquoise), it's still about girls growing up. Caitlin and Vix spend every summer of their adolescence together in Martha's Vineyard, living with Caitlin's family. Though all of the women in the book are strong characters, they make a lot of bad choices when it comes to men.

Comments to eBook The Activist's Daughter (Coming of Age Series)
Umdwyn
Representative of multiple conflicts with truth and humor. Timed during civil rights struggles in this country as experienced by a Russian emigrant family.
Also speaks of family love and mother daughter conflict and much more.

I could relate easily to the story. I was born and raised in Washington, DC and lived through the historical period depicted in the book.

WELL WRITTEN AND ENGROSSING-GREAT NARRATIVE ABOUT OUR CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISM IN THE 60'S.-CHARACTERS WERE REAL. RELIVED MY GENERATIONAL CHANGE .

Ellyn Bache serves up an interesting tale of relationships and identity in The Activist's Daughter. Living in bustling, Kennedy-era Washington, D.C., the Rosinsky family would appear to blend in well with their surroundings, if not for father Leonard's despondance over his reputation and career being destroyed after the McCarthy trials and mother Leah's determination to single-handedly help every worthy civil rights cause in the nation. Embarassed and angered by her mother's attention toward other people (and lack thereof toward her own family), seventeen-year-old Beryl wishes to break altogether from the activist's shadow. The best answer appears to be enrolling in an out-of-state college--North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which in 1963 was more likely a different country.
The Activist's Daughter is straightforward storytelling and a good recommendation for teenage readers interested in segregation and the Civil Rights Era. Though I would have liked to have seen more interaction between Beryl and her mother (who disappears mid-story and seems to pop up when convenient), Bache compensates for this strong conflict by keeping Leah in spirit, as seen in Beryl as watch her grow. Anyone frustrated with what television season has to offer in terms of "strong women" should pick us this book instead.

I thought this was a fantastic book to read. As a Chinese- American growing up with strict Chinese parents, I can relate a lot to the main character's feeling about growing up in a Jewish family. I would laugh and cry at the many feelings she was having because I have felt the same way many times. I also moved to South Carolina from New York in the 1970s in order to go to college and what an eye opener that was for me. Talk about culture shock! I could relate to the main character's experience so well and it brought back many memories. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it highly! It is definitely a must-read!

Ellen nailed this one. It's a terrific story. I found it hard to believe I wasn't reading a non-fiction memoir(and in many respects it was that). As always, her writing is crisp and the story flows nicely. I especially liked how she was so true to history, to the time and place as it was. This is one I will gift to our 18 year-old granddaughter who is off to college this fall.
