John Green's 6 favorite coming-of-age books

John Green's books include the best-selling novel, The Fault in Our Stars.

One of the author's six favorite coming-of-age books, as shared at The Week magazine:
The Blood of the Lamb by Peter de Vries

There are two coming-of-age stories here: one in which Don Wanderhop endures a difficult (but often hilarious) childhood and another in which he must come into a different kind of adulthood, as a father of a child living with cancer. Funny, angry, and thoroughly human, The Blood of the Lamb is the best novel about cancer I've ever read.
