In particular, Edward Bloor is the author of Tangerine. Tangerine is about named a boy
Paul, without good vision. He is a soccer player. He moves from Houston, Texas to Tangerine
County, Florida. He goes to Lake Windsor Middle School. Because his mom told the principal
of Lake Windsor about his vision, he wasn't able to play in the soccer team. A sinkhole happens
and he goes to Tangerine Middle School. Paul has changed a lot through out the novel. He has
made a lot of choices, some good and some bad.
To begin with, your question might be who is Paul. Paul Fisher is a 12 year old with big
thick glasses, almost like goggles. He is nearly blind. He got blind because of his brother. His
brother is Erik Fisher, a really mean bad boy. Erik spray painted his eyes. He also wears special
glasses for when he plays sports. The glasses are so that he could see and play better. He is in
7th grade. He played for for the Tangerine soccer team, War Eagles. He plays as a goalie. Paul
also has an older brother, Erik. Paul's parents rarely pay attention to him and plays more
attention to Erik.
After all Paul is an independent kind of person. Paul is misunderstood by his parents. His
parents always said that he was blind and couldn't see as good. Everybody said that he is blind
because he saw solar eclipse, it though wasn't true. It was a lie his parents made up so he
wouldn't feel bad or be mad at his brother. Erik has spray painted his eyes when he was small.
They rushed him to the hospital and made him believe he saw an eclipse. Paul made many
choices though. One day he went up to his parents and told them to tell him the truth about his
eyes. Paul was really happy when he joined the soccer team. The actions he did changed his life.
For example, he joined Tangerine without an IEP, just so he can be in the soccer team. It was
something he always...
