Tangerine, by Edward Bloor- J/BLO Twelve-year-old Paul, who lives in the shadow of his football hero brother Erik, fights for the right to play soccer despite his near blindness and slowly begins to remember the incident that damaged his eyesight.
Spangles - remember these? In 1974 they had fizzy flavours like Orangeade and Lemonade. Spangles are a good reminder of a time when, as Roald Dahl once said, "the sweetshop was the very centre of our lives"
This is the story of Paul as his family moves to the new town of Tangerine, Florida. Through a series of strange (and disastrous) events, Paul starts to remember forgotten events from his childhood and makes the best friends of his life along the way.
