A book of Lawrence Manley's should do the trick:
 
*London: An Anthology of Images*  (Croom Helm, about 1987??)
 
A series of well-introduced chapters on aspects of London life using
selections from contemporary documents. Chapters include ballads, satires,
sermons, descriptions, famous figures....
Might be a bit advanced, but then you can help him out can't you.

There's an anthology called "London in the Age of Shakespeare," edited by
Lawrence Manley, published in the U.S. by Penn State Univ. Press in 1986 and
in Britain by Croom Helm Ltd. It compiles excerpts from contemporary texts
ranging from sermons to jestbooks and broadside ballads.

Athough it is not primarily about Shakespeare's London and although it probably
is too advanced for a fourteen-year-old, one of the most interesting books I
have read recently that gives interesting insights into Shakespeare's London
has got to be Steven Mullaney's *The Place of the Stage: License, Play, and
Power in Renaissance England.
