Tangerine is by Edward Bloor. Paul Fisher's brother, Eric, is a football hero. Paul is not! He plays soccer even though he suffers from a mysterious eye injury that happened when he was very young and which he doesn't remember. It has caused him to have to wear very thick glasses to see. His family moves to Tangerine, Florida so his father can take a new job. When a player on his brother's football team is struck by lightning and killed, Paul begins to learn some terrible secrets about his brother and about his own past. A fantastic book and a Reader's Corner Highly Recommended read.
