At a very young age, Paul Fisher suffered eye damage in a mysterious accident that he can't remember. But his thick glasses can't keep him from being a great soccer goalie for his middle school team. He is, however, overshadowed by his older brother Erik, a high school football star with an evil temper few people know about.

When a huge sinkhole swallows half his school, Paul enrolls at Tangerine Middle and struggles to fit in. While his brother's football heroics make headlines, Paul simply fights for playing time on the soccer field. But as the year goes on, shocking secrets emerge that change the Fisher family forever.

This remarkable, award-winning book received glowing reviews in numerous publications and landed atop most reading lists. Ramon de Ocampo's skillful narration captures a full cast of diverse and well-developed characters as several gripping plot lines wind toward a startling conclusion.

    " I had this book on the shelves of my 5th grade classroom library for a long time and never read it. I'm sorry that it's taken 4 years out of the classroom to finally read it. I loved the story and was completely shocked at the twists and turns. I'm super excited to go to breakfast at TES on Tuesday and discuss this book with our 5th graders! "

    " Borrowed this book from my nephew. He had to read it over the summer for his school. I found the book fascinating. I read the book during the week when I had a chance and thought the message and the premise was perfect for a young teen. Not that he wanted to read it - after all it was the summer "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 2/7/2014

    " I enjoyed this book because it kept me guessing for many parts. It had a mystery because the protagonist doesn't know how he really became legally blind. He has flashbacks to the day, but nothing comes in clearly for him. His older brother gets all the attention for his football skills while he is an excellent soccer player. Just like Maniac Magee he sees no difference in people based on skin color. I loved the theme of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 2/7/2014

    " This book tackles a lot and it grew on me as I got further into it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophia Burnham | 2/1/2014

    " I liked this book because it was different then other books I have read. This book is different then others I have read because everything that happened in the book lead up to the big ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sean | 1/28/2014

    " A whine fest. The book would have been better if it were written from the perspective of Paul's sociopathic older brother, Eric. But then it would be a totally different book and would probably read like a milder version of "We need to talk about Kevin," which would have a different audience as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bookworm | 1/19/2014

    " Meh. It had some good parts but in the end it was just boring. Sure, it was cool that it turns out his brother is a dick in the end but the book was just filled with unnecessary details. No one cares about the houses and the Tudors and the whatnots. No one wants to hear every god damn detail of your soccer game. Even though I enjoyed the kind of creepy narrative (I'm a morbid person) the book was just...meh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 1/11/2014

    " This is one of the best books ever written. And whoever disagrees has heard no such thing about the heart and felt none of the cold realities of life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerst4ever | 1/6/2014

    " It was amazing. Paul captures your attention and holds it till the very end. This story is filled with so many things it keeps you mind going. This is the best book I've read this year. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connor Doherty | 1/3/2014

    " Tangerine was a swell book, that taught many life lessons. It has a great theme, and I think that the theme is that eventually, justice will be done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 11/21/2013

    " A deceptively easy read for nine years old and up. This book confronts or alludes to a lot of tough issues, so if your students read this, build in a lot of talk time. If it's your child reading this, read it too and talk about it with them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenneth Rodriguez | 11/20/2013

    " This book has many conflicts that a person might have in their life. In this book Paul Fisher has to deal with his conflicts and he goes through many challenges to fix his conflicts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John G. | 7/7/2013

    " I thought this book was OK but it had to many sudden deaths and natural disasters. It started off the chapter twice saying in the first sentience "so and so is dead." Thats the only thing i did not like about this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C.K. Volnek | 5/31/2013

    " Great view into the mind and life of a young boy dealing with a handicap and dysfunctional family. No one is normal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Efratm | 3/10/2013

    " This is a really good book. Even though I'm still currently reading this book, it is really interesting. I can't stop reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zofie Vedas | 12/12/2012

    " its not that bad but its kind of weird over all i liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 9/7/2012

    " I highly recommend this book to boys or girls that are passionate about sports. The soccer scenes are so well written that I got excited to see the result (and I'm not a sports nut). It's a sports twist on considering prejudice and family dynamics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Dean | 8/3/2012

    " This is a great chapter book that shows the true meaning of friendship, hard work, and bravery. It takes a lot to stand up to your friends, but even more to stand up to your family. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 5/15/2012

    " Could not get into this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Addie | 3/23/2012

    " It was a ood book especially being a soccer player it was very relatable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ellee | 1/12/2012

    " Tangerine was... the only way I could really describe it is: meh. Edward Bloor had the suspense, but it was more of the annoying type of suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrsthompson | 9/7/2011

    " I really like this book because it was realistic, but contained elements of a mystery. What did happen to Paul Fisher's eyes? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly L. | 8/4/2011

    " I liked it I just wish it told more about what happened to the Fishers after Erik was arrested. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/27/2011

    " This book is ok. If you just started to read it my advise is to keep reading. The begining is slow and rather boring, but the middle and end are really good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melly | 4/25/2011

    " I loved this book! There is this kid at my school who reminds me a lot of him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 4/20/2011

    " I really liked it but i was expecting a bit more. The secret part kinda let me down when i finished the book because i kept on waiting for something to jump out. I didn't realize what the secret was until i reread it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 4/13/2011

    " I had to read this book for my K205 class. It started out slow, but got much better as the book went on. I think a teacher could use this book and relate it to diversity, friendship, and disability. "
