Edward Bloors award-winning novel Tangerine grabs readers by the collar on the first page and never lets go. Tangerine, Florida once known for its citrus grovesis now an uninhabitable quagmire of muck fires and school-swallowing sinkholes. Still, twelve-year-old Paul sees the move as a way to start anew, maybe even make a name for himself in middle school soccerdespite his fathers obsession with his high-school-age brother Eriks future in football. Paul is visually impaired (without his Coke bottle glasses), but its everyone else who seems to be blind to Eriks dangerous nature. Written as a series of Pauls journal entries, Tangerine is a gut-wrenching coming-of-age novel about truth, memory, culture, courage, social consciousness, classism, the environment... and soccer. Paul is a character well worth cheering for. Underdogs of the world, unite!
