Depending on the culture you choose there are many other possible resources you could search. For example: if sports is a defining or major aspect of your teen trend you may want to search in the database SPORTDiscus. 

Newspaper Sources

You may be allowed to use a few popular sources in addition to your top-tier scholarly sources. These newspaper databases will help you locate newspaper and magazine articles and possibly get access to back issues of publications that you wouldn't be able to get through Google. Keep in mind that you'll need to evaluate these sources for credibility as well.
