My favorite fiction book is "A Small Rain" by Madeleine L'Engle - It is very much a coming of age novel, and follows the narrator - Katherine's, life journey from being a young child to growing into an adult. She has family, life, health, and love issues - and the story is honestly more than a bit tragic. But there's something that's both poetic and familiar with the way L'Engle writes and I think I actually sometimes appreciate an honest portrayal of hardship where there isn't some fairy-tale ending at the end of the story, but just the strength to continue and a glimmer of hope. I read it first as a middle-schooler and read it since then once every two or three years, I'm about due for reading it again sometime soon.
