It's Your Rite: Girls' Coming-of-Age Stories by Nora Coon, Susannah Gross-Andrew, Susan Gross

Turning 16 is more than a birthday — for many girls it marks a milestone on the road to womanhood. In It's Your Rite: Girls' Coming of Age Stories, girls themselves chronicle the wide variety of experiences around this event. Each chapter features a different teen author, and the subjects include everything from a memorable bat mitzvah to a nerve-wracking first date. There are hundreds of ways of marking the coming of age: wearing makeup for the first time, getting a driver's license, having a quinceanera celebration, and many others. Topics covered in the book include "Apache Coming-of-Age Ceremony," "Walking with the Goddess," "Sixteen Candles," "It's Your Party," and more. Also featured are photographs and an introduction from 14-year-old Nora Coon, contributing author and editor of the book, and a chapter on creating a customized coming-of-age ceremony.
