Tangerine, by Edward Bloor

The story is about a young boy who has vision problems and is trying to uncover the truth of why exactly he has them. He goes to school at a high end middle school, where he cannot play soccer, his sport, because of his eyesight. So, he transfers over to another poorer high school where he can play soccer. While there, he befriends the soccer team and a person named Luis. Shortly after, he uncovers the horrifying truth about why he has damaged eyes.

Tangerine, by Edward Bloor, was a great read, and I recommend it to anyone who needs a good book to read. The book starts slow, but picks up fast towards the middle and just never stops. The author never lost track of the real reason why we are reading; to find out why the main character is blind. The ending is unpredictable, and the only way he finds out is through an unfortunate event, and a series of flashbacks. This book has a way of getting capturing your interest, and if there is one book you definitely should read, it is this one.
