“Coming-of-age book about a legally blind boy in Florida. Very suspenseful and often dark. Themes of class oppression and gentrification of traditionally rural areas. One could categorize this as a "boy" book, the relationship between the protagonist and his older brother is central to the plot and many of the themes Bloor explores.
"[The carnival] is low-rent, but it's cool, in a low-rent kind of a way."”
“Tangerine is about a soccer player named Paul who moves to Tangerine County, Florida. His older brother Eric is the star kicker on the football team at the high school. Paul is legally blind but his parents say that Paul stared into an eclipse for too long and then he became legally blind. Paul believes that Eric has something to do with the real reason to why he became legally blind. Did Eric do something to Paul that caused him to become blind? Paul will soon find out! ”A.

“Tangerine by Edward Bloor is a great book middle school boys and discusses issues like bullying, natural disasters and sibling rivalry. It is about a boy named Paul who is in the 7th grade, he lives in his older brother's shadow, however, he knows the truth about him that their parents can't see. This book has everything from soccer and football to tangerine groves, to sinkholes to murder. I love this book and wish I still taught middle school so that I could teach this to my students!”AMowbray wrote this review Saturday, November 9, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“A Comment on the novel, “Tangerine” by Edward Bloor
I am on page 109.
After reading the first 109 pages of the novel “Tangerine” by ” by Edward Bloor, I was surprised. I have to admit although I’m not a person who reads a lot, I can still relate to this book. I like to play soccer, and the novel is about a boy named Paul Fisher. Paul is a middle school boy who is legally blind. On top of his condition Paul plays for the schools soccer team, and has moved from Texas, too Tangerine, Florida. In the novel Paul’s conflict of being legally blind builds up chaos, as it is affecting his performance in soccer, but will he find a way to cope with it. I recommend the novel Tangerine for everybody, it is a great book that is full of surprises.
