It's the American South, and Sidra, in her 20s, lost a sister to AIDS. Now she's in love with Curtis, a redneck, homophobic rocker.
Their relationship is complicated by Curtis' younger stepbrother, Paul. You see, Paul is gay and has a habit of hooking up with older guys in dangerous locations. And Sidra? She wants to protect Paul.
Then Kent, a member of Curtis' band, hooks up with Paul and the two guys start a relationship...
While not published as a Young Adult novel, I'm including "Bear Me Safely Over" here because Paul is a Gay teen and much of this novel revolves around that.
Oh, and there's a good interview with the author here.
