What's thr function "la" here? I though "de băieții răi" already means "of the bad boys"...could anyone help me? Thank you

I'm not sure what you mean by "of", the preposition seems to be "from" (maybe the sentence was changed between our comments?). Anyway, the thing here is as simple as "de la" = "from".

What a great sentence. Could be the opening line for a short story. You know what will happen with the girls & the bad boys writings. Scrisorile de la băieții rai.
