We all have those books that we read and loved as children or young teens that then went on to heavily influence our reading as adults. Sometimes it's that we discover the author was writing in the Young Adult genre, but really had dozens of books in adult genres that led us to where we are today. Other times, it's simply the tropes that we were introduced to in that early book, that we can find parallels for in our current reading.
What book did that for you? What themes, tropes, or archetypes can you find that carried over from that early book, into your current reading?
