Racquet for 5'1'' 15 year-old boy?

He's been using the Babolat AeroPro Drive Junior racquet until now, and he says he wants an adult racquet. He's like 1.55m thus I guess he mustn't play with a heavy racquet. His level of tennis is pretty respectable, he asked me for advice but.. I have no idea Any help would be appreciated

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

And it's urgent cause he just came back of his vacations and I had promised him that I would search the right racquet for him

If he likes Babolats.
There's also a Wilson nCode n5 Oversize that gives lots of power and is pretty light, in the 9 oz range.

What is his level of play? Is he a beginner, intermediate or advanced?

Intermediate. Thanks for the answers! He ended up buying the Babolat AeroPro Drive Lite
