The house looked strange. It was completely empty now, and the door was flung wide open, like something wild had just escaped from it. Like it was the empty, two-story tomb of some runaway zombie. (from the first line)
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. An ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Reprint. Jr Lib Guild. *Author: Bloor, Edward *Publication Date: 2006/09/01 *Number of Pages: 312 *Binding Type: Paperback *Grade Level: 4-6 *Language: English *Depth: 0.75 *Width: 5.00 *Height: 8.00
From the Publisher:
Though legally blind, Paul Fisher can see what others cannot. He can see that his parents' constant praise of his brother, Erik, the football star, is to cover up something that is terribly wrong. But no one listens to Paul--until his family moves to Tangerine. In this Florida town, weird is normal: Lightning strikes at the same time every day, a sinkhole swallows a local school, and Paul the geek finds himself adopted into the toughest group around: the soccer team at his middle school.
    
Maybe this new start in Tangerine will help Paul finally see the truth about his past--and will give him the courage to face up to his terrifying older brother.
    
Includes a reader's guide and an afterword by the author.|||

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Smart, adaptable, and anchored by a strong sense of self-worth, Paul makes a memorable protagonist in a cast of vividly drawn characters; multiple yet taut plotlines lead to a series of gripping climaxes and revelations." 02/01/1997

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The slightly absurd edge to the comedy and the genuine humor of the banter in no way undercuts the force of the team's devotion and the bitter results of Erik's violence. Bloor is a promising new voice, and this is a richly imagined read about an underdog coming into his own." - Deborah Stevenson March 1997

Voya
"This is an exciting, suspenseful, and thought-provoking book that should be a hit with soccer-playing middle schoolers." - Brenda Moses-Allen August 1997
