Coming of age from a teen girls point of view

dorrir

I really like coming of age stories. I would really like to read one from a teen girl's POV. Not a slut but a girl dealing with her hormones and looking for love.

See Janna Leonard's stories. In particular 'Nollie' but 'Cassie', 'Hannah' and 'Pillow Talk' as well.

Oyster50's stories tend to switch POV so it's only from the teenage girl's POV part of the time.

'Heros' by Don Lockwood is about a high school girl dealing with bullying and trying to find a way to fit in.

I started Nollie, it looks very interesting, thanks. I've read just about all of Oyster50s stories. I like them a lot but was looking for more normal girls.

@LonelyDad

Thanks, really enjoyed the read.

Also see Gina Marie Wylie's 'Kate and Lyn' if you don't mind there not being any guys in the mix.

There's another one that I should be able to remember but the title is escaping me (she's a twin but there were complications during the pregnancy and she came out of it small and weak - a big chunk of the story is her slow seduction of her twin brother who has always looked out for her.)

"Bec" by BarBar.

Bec is a good, albeit rare example. Not really many female CoA stories here. And even then, Bec only covers some weeks in her life.

I would read the fuck out of any story like AWWL with a female protag, doesn't even have to be sexual.

Probably because of all Steve's drama I'm surprised he isn't a she!! LOL!

Updated:

I just started (as in two days ago) writing something along that lines, sadly I'm only ~7000 words in but if you want to proofread/edit I'd gladly use beta-readers.

The plot truly starts shortly before the protagonist turns thirteen and I've a rough plan until around 30, but there will be some time-skips.

As a warning, the protagonist will not be hetero-sexual

I get the A, one W and L in AWWL. If you need four letters, why not AWLL?

Betsy Carter in Lazlo Zalezacs John Carter Universe.

I suppose that technically that would work. Betsy is a fun character but I would hardly term her, her coming of age and, especially, her circumstances within that family, as average!

@anja

Betsy is twenty-four years old at the start of her story, so she is not a teen coming of age - although she is exerting her independence in the first few chapters.

Would "Lady in Red" fit? Though I think that is more third person.

Just a personal opinion here: This kind of story works better when written (or co-written) by a woman.
Janna Leonard's stories certainly qualify, as do Gina Marie Wylie's. Barbar also posted on GMW's site for a while and GMW referred to Barbar as male.
https://storiesonline.net/s/41504/once-more-with-feelings is a time-travel / coming-of-age written by a male, but with a lot of input from the author's - I think - wife.

I have found and am reading several good stories based on your kind suggestions.

Now if someone would write a girl's version of Mac Geyser's An All-American Teenage Sex Life.

Thanks all.

@Vlad_Inhaler

Once more with feeling is a do-over and a body swap with a woman/girl. MC is a man transferd to a girls body. i wouldn't realy coun't it as a coming of age as it's more of a man dealing with being a girl in an all girl cathloc school.

thank you i've been meaning to re-read this it's good story.

@Centaur

Yes - I wrote time-travel when I meant do-over, no idea how that happened. It was the body-swap aspect which made it a coming-of-age for me.
