El sepulcro del cuervo by Núria Masot
To think, to dare, and to love. Absolutely inspiring. This last book of Masot’s quintology is as good as the Very Good first (La Sombra del Templario), nearly as good as the Extremely Good second book (Laberinto: El Laberinto de la Serpiente) of this series. More inter-generational than Harry Potter(Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), and using the test of war (though battle scenes are almost never seen) as the coming of age ritual for both young men who come of age in the series, there remains a paradox. The teacher Bernard, who dies in the very start of book 1, remains a constant presence throughout the series. He is the real hero.

So, it turns out that reading authors from other countries is fun, and useful! Coming of age in a different time and place still requires the cooperation of local community.
