Girl : a novel / Bart Bare.
Summary: After her mother dies, Loren Creek, a precocious fourteen-year-old, flees the Tennessee foster-care system for North Carolina where, with the help of a curmudgeonly mountain man, she evades detection by pretending to be a boy, even becoming place-kicker on the high school football team.
