EAT MORE!!!!!!!! I've never tried Starting Strength but have heard nothing but good things about it. When I started working out (around your age) I did pretty well using WannaBeBig Routine #1-3 though so give those a look too
Ascending order so #1 is at the bottom
Also, bookmark this website or try and find something similar: http://exrx.net/Lists/Directory.html
It breaks down muscle groups on the right side of the page, if you click a muscle group it'll further break it down and show you different exercises for each one
My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.
You don't need supplements right now, you need to eat more. Start with 4000 calories per day and work your way up from there. Combine that with a sensible weight training program such as Starting Strength and you will be well on your way.

At your age you should be eating as much as possible to grow, not all junk but some is fine, and just get started with a basic program like SS that has structure to start building a foundation.

I was 6'2 and 145, just do SS as written and pound the food down, the eating starts getting harder than the lifting, just aim to get stronger every time you step in the gym.
Normally I tell people that wanna gain weight to eat meat,eggs,veggies and milk. You are so skinny I would recommend Double Cheeseburger,Pizza and Milkshakes also. Forget clean just eat! You should have a couple PB and Jelly sandwiches with you at all times,eat them in between meals.

You will have gotten stronger when the weight that feels heavy is actually heavier than the weight that feels heavy now. Then the weight that feels heavy now will be a warmup for the weight that feels heavy then. But the weight will always feel heavy or you're not lifting enough weight. Clear? -Rippetoe
Gallon Of Milk A Day. Whole Milk. On top of your normal diet.
It's actually not that hard to do. A large glass with each meal, then a large glass in between meals. That will usually do it. The idea is to space out moderately-large glasses of milk through out the day, so it equals out to a gallon.
The ratio of nutrients in whole milk is good for growing mammals. You are a wannabe-growing mammal.
Oh yeah, and squat and dead lift your **** off.

i do drink a good amount of milk but i would like to drink more. ill have to start buying my own gallons, we go through bout a gallon a day as a family now.
i have several reasons for wanting to get bigger but the main one is the hobby i have. i race stock cars and when u come into the sport at 15 and start whooping ***** on the track the guys that have been doing it for years get mad. tempers flared last year and several fights started over me, and lets just say that racing attracts BIG boys
