As to where to find great stories, The New Yorker stories are generally best, but require a subscription if you read too many in a month. I also like Narrative Magazine , which will ask you for an email, but their stories are free too. Tor of course has some great free stuff, and you can find most of the classics through Gutenberg. The stories on this list that are not from any of these publications, I found through simple Google searches.
The key to engaging reluctant teen readers is finding books that are both appealing and accessible. Here are some books that cover topics of high interest to teens, but are written at lower reading levels.

While some of the themes are edgy, the story provides a good moral. This and other books by Saddleback Educational Publishing are designed to be approachable to reluctant readers, both in format and in theme.
