Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twelve-year-old Paul, who lives in the shadow of his football hero brother Erik, fights for the right to play soccer despite his near blindness and slowly begins to remember the incident that damaged his eyesight.

Review:

"This is an exciting, suspenseful, and thought-provoking book that should be a hit with soccer-playing middle schoolers." VOYA

Review:

"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 plotlines lead to a series of gripping climaxes and revelations. Readers are going to want more from this author." Kirkus Reviews

Beverly B, August 3, 2013 (view all comments by Beverly B)
In Tangerine, the action packed soccer and football games will appeal to sports fans, but the suspense, middle school drama and great characters will appeal to all readers. Edward Bloor creates characters who are real adolescents with real adolescent insecurities, joys and goals. He also creates families who are real, with real flaws and real love. Paul Fletcher has a lot to deal with: 1. Middle school is brutal especially when you are the new kid and wear glasses that get you the nickname Martian Boy. 2. His brother, Eric, is a high school superstar, a sure bet for a football scholarship to a top university and wildly popular. Paul's parents are so caught up in planning Eric's future, Paul is their invisible child. 3. Paul's exceptional soccer skills have always been the way he fits in and makes friends, but his mother accidently gets him kicked off the soccer team at his new school. 4. Paul knows his brother, Eric, has a dark, cruel side and suspects that Eric is up to something very bad, but his parents won't listen to his concerns. Through all of this, Paul perseveres, never forgetting who is and what is important to him. When he gets kicked off the soccer team at his upscale suburban school, he guilt-trips his mother into letting him go the blue collar, mostly minority, tough city school. At Tangerine Middle School Paul is challenged to work harder at soccer than he has ever had to before to compete with the numerous outstanding players already on the team. He also discovers what it takes to be and have authentic friends. Mostly, he learns that doing the right thing sometimes comes with a very high price, but doing the right thing is more important than doing what is easy.

I read this book about a year ago, and I think it's a great book for anyone who wants to read a not-boring book. I wish they could make a second novel of this book.
