Resources for growing up?

I'm 21, and for a little while, have been very teary-eyed over some changes in my life. My childhood home is being sold and I actually began sobbing when I saw the listing online and over the thought of it no longer being my home. I feel like I'm grieving my childhood and my childhood friends and what life used to feel like when I was 13, 14, 15. I feel pretty ridiculous feeling this way, but I also feel pretty scared and sick to my stomach over all of these changes.
I feel like the past decade has just hit me in the face and I'm suddenly much older than I thought I was.
Does anyone have any good resources that may help me to cope with this sort of thing? Books (fiction or self-help), movies, articles, and anecdotes are welcome.
