Must Read: Tangerine

Rereading books from your childhood can be a lot of fun. Some books are still equally as awesome now as they were back then. Others? Well, you end up chuckling at your taste.

 I recently reread Tangerine by Edward Bloor. The story sucked me in! I had a hard time putting it down.

The story centers around Paul Fisher and his family. There’s a lot of unanswered questions, things swept under the rug. His parents are so involved in his older brother Eric’s football career that they barely pay attention to Paul’s talent in soccer.

I don’t want to give too much away, but the Fishers’ move to Tangerine, Florida is the catalyst for major change. The box of skeletons they tried to leave behind moved with them and you know how skeletons don’t stay hidden forever…

I highly recommend this book. It’s still one of my favorites from childhood. If you end up reading it, let me know what you think.
