Publisher's Summary

Paul Fisher sees the world from behind glasses so thick he looks like a bug-eyed alien. But he’s not so blind that he can’t see there are some very unusual things about his family’s new home in Tangerine County, Florida. Where else does a sinkhole swallow the local school, fire burn underground for years, and lightning strike at the same time every day?

The chaos is compounded by constant harassment from his football-star brother, and adjusting to life in Tangerine isn’t easy for Paul - until he joins the soccer team at his middle school. With the help of his new teammates, Paul begins to discover what lies beneath the surface of his strange new hometown. And he also gains the courage to face up to some secrets his family has been keeping from him for far too long.

In Tangerine, it seems, anything is possible.

Good book, narration was irritating at times.

The storyline on its own was pretty good. Some of the characters drove me crazy, but without giving the story away, I won’t say much else. My biggest problem was with the narrators voice. He seemed to have taken a mocking tone when a lot of the adults were speaking, and his acting voice was way over done, and probably contributed to my irritation toward the characters. I might have felt differently if I read the book on my own.

This book is great but the way audible expresses it even more enjoyable

Audible is a great app for starters in reader and more experienced readers. reading this book page for page is very hard for me but with audible I was very interactive to the book

My daughter loved the story!

Good story about a boy who doesn't realize why he is odd and comes to terms with his brothers mean nature. There are a few heroic deeds thrown in too.
