What can they read to help motivate the teens?

A friend of mine is looking for suggestions of newsletters, videos, books, etc. that will help staff-members in a residential foster care program interact with their clients. The clients are 16-21 year old young men, that have been in and out of the foster care program. This material would preferably be in Spanish, would help motivate the teens, and/or would possibly discuss developmental issues. Any and all ideas are welcome.

Best answer: Anything by SE Hinto would work in this situation. One of his translated works is La Ley De La Calle. He has a good take on late male adolescence and the books are straightforward enough and deal with issues that are common enough that they make for good growth and development discussion material.

Response by poster: Thanks ptm! I know that was a tough request -- I appreciate you coming through. I've told my friend about SE Hinto, and she thinks he'll be a great addition to her recommendations.
