Tangerine is an Exceptional Story

Excellent story with high level of interest for teenagers. Strong heroic character must overcome the facades put in place by his family because they refuse to see the truth about his evil older brother. Ironically, the main character is legally blind but sees so much more than those around him who choose to be blind. This story reads almost like a science fiction but is realistic fiction with a very satisfying conclusion.

Required Reading

My sons 7th grade PreAP class will be reading this soon. I was disappointed that they weren't reading The Outsiders like the regular seventh grade classes, because I remembered fondly from my childhood. Still, I thought I'd better check Tangerine out.

Tangerine is great storytelling with excellent themes and I suspect it's characters will be more directly relatable to my suburban teen then with the greasers and socs of the Outsiders. I'm excited to explore these themes with him.
