Literature read by a person not only reflects, but also affects that person. In fact, certain books (transition books) might trigger this process of becoming interested in grownup's literature and therefore mentally becoming a grownup. In this paper, we detect books that are likely to be transition books or transition book candidates based on a loan dataset provided to us by Vantaa City Library. With four methods applied to this dataset we show what books and why are likely to be the candidates. We found the following candidate books: Tähtiin kirjoitettu virhe by John Green, Punainen kuin veri by Salla Simukka and Luukaupunki by Cassandra Clare. Our findings also indicate a few other books that are less likely, but still good candidates for transition books.
