    Tangerine

    by Edward Bloor

    Paul Fisher is legally blind and has lived most of his life in the shadow of his older brother, the football-playing hero of the family. But when the Fishers move to Tangerine, Florida, Paul enters a place where suddenly the blind can see and begins to unravel the truth about his disturbed and menacing brother. "In a climactic ending, Paul finally confronts his parents with the truth about the brother he fears, and readers will cheer for this bright, funny, decent kid."-Horn Book. Paul Fisher's older brother is a high school football star, but to Paul he's no hero. Paul's own game is soccer, which he plays even though he has to wear thick glasses because of a mysterious eye injury. When the Fishers move to Tangerine, Florida, Paul tries to make sense of things. But it's not easy. In Tangerine, underground fires burn to years and lightning strikes the same practice field every day. Strange things happen here all the time but nothing is stranger than the secrets Paul discovers about his brother, his new group of friends, and his own dangerous past.

About This Book

Paul Fisher's older brother Erik is a high school football star, but to Paul he's no hero. Paul's own game is soccer, which he plays even though he has to wear thick glasses because of a mysterious eye injury.

When the Fishers move to Tangerine, Florida, Paul tries to make sense of things. Like why people live in a place where underground fires burn for years, a sinkhole swallows his school, and lightning strikes the same practice field everyday. Why he fits into the toughest group around, which just happens to be his new soccer team. And most of all, why no one but he can see the terrifying truth about Erik.

Praise for Tangerine

"Smart, adaptable, and anchored by a strong sense of self-worth, Paul makes a memorable protagonist in a cast of vividly drawn characters; multiple yet taut plot lines lead to a series of gripping climaxes and revelations. Readers are going to want more from this author." — Kirkus Reviews
