Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Tangerine is an Exceptional Story"

    Excellent story with high level of interest for teenagers. Strong heroic character must overcome the facades put in place by his family because they refuse to see the truth about his evil older brother. Ironically, the main character is legally blind but sees so much more than those around him who choose to be blind. This story reads almost like a science fiction but is realistic fiction with a very satisfying conclusion.

    Like many of you probably, Audible has become my best friend. I'm a huge fan of paranormal fantasies and mysteries.

    "Wow!"

    At first at thought it was interesting, then things started to get a little boring in the middle. But I thought it was wonderful in the end. I like the whole plot, the whole story. Loved it.

    "Why isn't audio complete?"
    Any additional comments?

    Why isn't the audio complete? The audio ended but the story isn't done yet. It still has about 30 more pages to go.

    "Good"

    It was a very good book that you can reflect upon as a person. It was very exciting once you got passed the first chapter which was not nearly as intriguing as the remainder of the book

    Story
    "One of my Favorites"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone. It's a fun book that doesn't drag, but doesn't rush important character development either.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything! The story is told in Paul's point of view in an extremely believable way.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This book just builds up so well on it's own, but I love when Paul is talking about the soccer games. I've never played or even watched a full game of soccer, but the author paints the picture, and explains it so well that I fell in love with the game.
