When his family moves to Tangerine, Florida, Paul doesn't expect life to be much different. His brother Erik's football dream will dominate his parents' attention, and Paul will be forgotten. But Tangerine is different than Houston--really different. When a sinkhole swallows part of Paul's middle school during a torrential rainstorm, Paul gets a chance to attend Tangerine Middle School, where he can play soccer. The Tangerine War Eagles are different than any other soccer team Paul has played on, different just like the town. The team includes guys and girls, and it's a team of misfits like Paul. Playing with the War Eagles, he finds new self-confidence and begins to see life more clearly. Something is very wrong with Paul's family, something about his brother Erik that neither of his parents will admit. Paul knows that it's only a matter of time before the real Erik reappears with disastrous consequences. Paul Fisher is supposed to be legally blind, but he sees better than anyone else in his family. -- Description by: Tom Reynolds
