Hi, I am 17. I've been struggling with this stuff for over 3 years now. Soon to change hopefully because I joined GYE last week. I am extremely impressed with the forums and they include lots of answers to the questions I originally had. Now enough of the formalities.
Question: My parents are oblivious to my addiction -- and I plan to keep it like that. However, GYE has a lot of material to read and one of my mentors also recently sent me a huge PDF that I don't have the energy to scroll through on a screen for hours on end. I want to purchase the book I was sent and have a hard copy, but I don't have my own amazon account, or credit card or anything. Let's just say I'm having trouble getting the book without my parents. What should I do?

First of all, your attitude is a very positive one and with Hashem's help you'll be out of lust issues very soon. 
My opinion is that it's not a healthy thing to buy things and keep them hidden from your parents.  It's very understandable that you want to keep your lust issues private,  but try to leave it at that.
we'll help you sift thru and get the information you need for your recovery without buying books now...
if after some time you see that the book is needed we'll address it then
