     Our school reads 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens with the sophomores.  The English department would like to read a biography with the students that supports the concepts of the book.  Preferably it would focus on a teenager learning to take responsibility for his/her actions, overcome the past, improve relationships, etc.   They really want it to be non-fiction, and the content needs to be appropriate for sophomores (reading level and content).  In an attempt to relate to the male students (who are often not excited about self-help books), they would like a male as the focus.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you,
