I found this a very inspiring story of John Wesley's life. It would work well for a general introduction to understanding him, and was indeed written in simple enough language for a young person to understand. Any man who is still riding horseback to preach sermons in his 80's has a lot of motivation and determination! As a man who sparked a major movement that continues to this day, he provides much to emulate.
I really enjoyed reading about John Wesley. It was interesting to see him go from a works based faith to a relationship with Jesus, and then reading about his tireless efforts to share that true faith. He was a great leader and so humble, even to the end.
