Any challenge or ritualized moment in which a person goes from child to adult. The other option here is coming of age, but felt like a more passive, ambiguous movement over time, when what is meant here is someone having an active, singular moment in which he or she becomes an adult. For example, Lucius winning the horse race in The Reivers (274). JB
