"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."
"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."
"This is an exciting, suspenseful, and thought-provoking book that should be a hit with soccer-playing middle schoolers."
From the Publisher
Annotation Life changes for Paul, a 12-year-old who is nearly blind, when he and his family move to the strange town of Tangerine. By joining the local soccer team, Paul begins to emerge from the shadow of his overbearing, football-hero older brother, Erik. Paul's surprising success on the soccer field gives him the confidence to begin to remember the terrifying incident that almost destroyed his sight.
First Line 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.
Editors Note While legally blind, nerdy Paul is nevertheless able to see that his parents use praise to cover up his wicked brother's behavior, and when the family moves to Tangerine, Paul finds himself a member of the tough soccer team. Jr Lib Guild.
