Between the ages of nine and ten, children begin to experience themselves as "I" for the first time and begin to see themselves as individuals, different from their parents and peers and essentially alone. This inner experience is sometimes precipitated by the child's first encounter with death or otherwise develop their first notion that earthly life is fragile and temporary.

In this insightful book, Koepke offers the reader a lucid, accessible description of the outer signs and symptoms of this significant turning point in every human life.
