Do you have a sarcastic sense of humor?  If so, then do I have a book for you!  How to Fight, Lie, and Cry Your Way To Popularity (and a prom date) by Nikki Roddy is a hoot.  She profiles 50 famous teen movies, and summarized a life lesson from each.  Risky Business (1983) life lesson:  "If you lie to your parents, steal your dad's car, and solicit a prostitute, you'll get into an Ivy League school." 
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) life lesson: " If you're forced into a life of killing vampires, at least look hot while doing it."  I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)  life lesson:  "If you're going to accidently run over a psychopath and dump his body in a harbor, make sure he is actually dead."  Bring it On (2000) life lesson:  "Even if you get caught stealing routines, and have no choreographic experience, you can still take second place at a national cheer competition."  Twilight (2008) life lesson:  "It's OK to date a dead, murderous vampire so long as he's hot and has great hair."  There is also a trivia question, and a "sound bit" from each movie.  Not a particularly deep read, but lots of fun!
