Publisher Comments:

Bienvenido a Tangerine. Este lugar es más raro de lo que parece. Paul Fisher ve el mundo a través de anteojos tan gruesos que parece un insecto del espacio exterior. Pero no está tan ciego como para no ver que hay algunas cosas muy poco normales en la nueva casa de su familia, en el condado de Tangerine, Florida. ¿En dónde más un socavón se traga la escuela de la localidad, el fuego arde debajo de la tierra por años y caen rayos a la misma hora todos los días?      Con todo este caos, mezclado con el acoso constante de su hermano —quien es una estrella del fútbol americano—, acoplarse a la vida en Tangerine no es fácil para Paul. Hasta que se une al equipo de fútbol de la escuela media donde estudia. Con la ayuda de sus nuevos compañeros de equipo, Paul descubre lo que se esconde bajo la extraña superficie de su nuevo lugar de residencia. Y también obtiene el coraje para enfrentar algunos de los secretos que su familia le ha estado ocultando por demasiado tiempo.      En Tangerine, tal parece, cualquier cosa es posible.

Synopsis:

In this enduring favorite, now in a Spanish language edition for the first time ever, a season with the toughest soccer team in the county gives twelve-year-old Paul the confidence to stand up to his wicked brother.

Synopsis:

Paul Fisher sees the world from behind glasses so thick he looks like a bug-eyed alien. But hes not so blind that he cant see there are some very unusual things about his familys new home in Tangerine County, Florida. Where else does a sinkhole swallow the local school, fire burn underground for years, and lightning strike at the same time every day? The chaos is compounded by constant harassment from his football-star brother, and adjusting to life in Tangerine isnt easy for Paul—until he joins the soccer team at his middle school. With the help of his new teammates, Paul begins to discover what lies beneath the surface of his strange new hometown. And he also gains the courage to face up to some secrets his family has been keeping from him for far too long. In Tangerine, it seems, anything is possible.
