You and Your Adolescent, New and Revised edition: The Essential Guide for Ages 10-25 by Laurence Steinberg
This book covers everything you need to know about adolescents - physical changes, emotional development, cognitive development, friends, drugs, etc. It's all in here.
It was helpful for me to read this with my own adolescence in mind. This book would have been really handy to read as a 13 or 14-year old. It just explains a lot.
This isn't really light reading. It's more educational. Definitely recommended if you work with adolescents, if you have an adolescent, if you're gonna have an adolescent anytime soon, or if you're just curious about what was going on with yourself during those junior high, high school, and college years.
