Will doesn't exactly grow up in The Dark is Rising series. He's 11 in the first book and not much older in the last book. At least chronologically. They're not coming of age books, though they are very, very VERY good.
Try Sabrael, Lirael and Abhorson by Garth Nix. Probably his very best books.
Most of Mercedes Lackey's books, certainly her Valdemar ones, have this theme. THAT will keep you busy for months!
