What Happened to Lani Garver, by Carol Plum-Ucci.
The narrator is a white teenage girl with an eating disorder and the other character might be a boy, and "he" might be gay, but "he" never really says and the people in "his" town have a problem with this. This is also a YA novel, mostly because that's what I read, and it's not the most groundbreaking work on feminism or transphobia or homophobia, but it is a good introduction.
