Spec fiction is definitely worth including. I thought that the science fiction novel Rite of Passage by Alexei Panshin was a classic coming of age story. Even though it happens in outer space, it still seems so relevant to experiences on Earth. The book is from 1968, so it's from the Revolution days.
