Divas and Doorslammers is fantastic. It's really great on practical tips to improve things.
Get Out Of My Life (But first take me and Alex in to town) is also good, but is more about why teens behave they do.

I found reading both was helpful - Get Out of My Life helped me understand better, and Divas helped me actually make changes that improved things!
