Tangerine by Edward Bloor


Tangerine By: Edward Bloor

About: This book is awesome.  It is about a teen boy named Paul Fisher who is blind. Paul moves from Texas to Tangerine Florida. Paul is good at soccer, but the new school in Florida won’t let him play because of his disability. So, he goes to another school and his mom doesn’t turn in the disability forms so that he will be able to be on the new school’s soccer team. Later on during the season Paul plays his old team and the other team’s coach recognizes him. The old coach tries to tell the coach he can’t play but, the new coach doesn’t believe him and Paul’s team wins the game.

Kevin’s Thoughts: The one thing I did not like about this book was when the setting and plot changes in the middle. It caused a bit of a lull and it lost some of the excitement and slowed down the momentum.Otherwise, no complaints. The end was equally engaging as the beginning.

I would recommend this book to sport and biography fans.
