Reading suggestions for a 17 yr old who's never read anything enjoyable

This is a two part question. Part 1 is: Can you help me find a blogpost or essay I read in the past couple of weeks where a male worker writes about his daily life as a welder on construction sites, with flashbacks to his younger years, including being deaf in one ear and never telling his mom 'til he was in his teens. He also writes about standing around the lunch truck, and also about being the only blue-collar writer in a writing program, and about why he writes. Part 2 is: A teenager of my acquaintance recently said to me "I've never read anything I liked", after I asked him if he was liking the book he's reading for lit class. What would you suggest he read?
