Paul Fisher is legally blind, but that doesn’t stop him from playing soccer. With the help of extra strong glasses, Paul can see just fine, as long as you don’t sneak up behind him. A malicious “accident” caused Paul’s blindness, and readers are kept wondering what really happened until the end of the book. Paul’s brother, Eric, is a football star, and Paul’s parents don’t come to any soccer games because they are always cheering Eric on. In their new home of Tangerine, Florida, both boys start to grow and to create lives for themselves, but tragedy just keeps striking, like the lightning that kills a boy at football practice. This is a wonderful book for anyone who has ever felt just a little bit different.

Paul is a boy who moves from Houston, Texas to Tangerine, Florida. He is legally blind but can see with glasses. He lives in an expensive neighborhood and goes to an expensive school. Then, one rainy day, a big sink hole opened up and gobbled up the seventh grade trailers. He has to go to a much older, worn-down school. Paul wasn't always blind. He does not remember who or what made him blind. Does he find out?This is a story filled with ups and downs, twists and turns. If you hang on for the ride, you will be amazed at how it all turns out.
