A lifelong movie buff puts his knowledge and passion on paper to show you the best films of his favorite movie genre, Coming of Age. The author highlights some of the finest acting, the most poignant moments, and the funniest gags in movies about growing up, reflecting each decade of American culture since the beginning of film-making, while illustrating the ageless turbulence and confusion of adolescence.

Celebrating movies made for teenagers and movies about teenagers, Ryan recalls stars like Shirley Temple and James Dean, reminding us why we love so many of these pictures and introducing more that we don't want to miss. A perfect read for film lovers of any age, this book is for everyone who looked for role-models and sought comfort in the friendships on screen during the tumultuous times of growing up.

Ryan also takes a look at what it was like to be young in each decade since the 1920s, and he outlines the evolution of film-making techniques and technology. He shows how social trends influenced what could and would be shown on the silver screen, especially as Hollywood increasingly identified "youth" as a lucrative market.
