Coming-of-age Novels for adults

This type of novel, called bildungsroman,  deals with a character's formative years and spiritual education. The years of youth often are painful to recall, but very satisfying to read about when the events happen to a fictional character.

What similarities or differences reminded you of your own youth?  Did the characters' struggles seem real and true?

Bring along a brownbag lunch and a book on the theme.  A selection is on display, or you may bring another favorite to discuss.
