Noah is 16, and he can't stand his Dad's Christian-Conservative-Hate-Spreading-Anti-Gay radio show.
A couple of gay teens in foster homes get murdered, and when the next victim is a boy Noah knows, he feels guilty and becomes determined to solve the crime.
Noah pockets the dead boy's journal - in which the killer wrote clues - and is out to prove that someone does care about these homeless gay teens - the "less-dead."
And that someone is Noah.
My thanks to Steph for the recommendation, and for sharing that "There's also a cool section at the end of the book that that summarizes the main passages of the Bible that people use to condemn homosexuality, and how that's not really what they say."
