Lisa: Bildungsroman

Since we have about a thousand books in the library system under this subject heading, I thought I'd better find out what it means.


a novel which traces the spiritual, moral, psychological, or social development and growth of the main character from (usually) childhood to maturity.

Thank you, Wikipedia. The world is a smarter place today because of you. Here are some alternate (but very similar) definitions via OneLook.
