I decided we would do a read aloud at home each day. I totally enjoyed this with him. As we read each day with dedicated time set aside, we dove into this book. It was an easy book to get into and pulled into the characters. The book touched based on social issues of kids who have it all and then the kids who have nothing. Family issues of internal bullying, and learning what's really important no matter the cost of loved ones. Learning about heroes and who really is a hero. There's just so much in this book that anyone that went to a public/private school can relate to.
Also, I loved the fact that each day I read aloud, my other children and even my husband became engrossed in the story. It gave us much to talk about and they looked forward to each day of reading time. Sometimes, we'd even run past our dedicated time. That was fine with me! I loved it! Oh and yes, this does have audible access, but there is something about reading aloud with your kids that builds a great opportunity to connect and discuss things that you normally don't get. The conversations were wonderful and insightful.
If you are reading this for school, I did find some great graphic organizers out there that assisted my son, and those help keep him even more engaged and a much better retention of information with these organizers.
Wow, I cried, I laughed, I cried and laughed and cried some more. What a wonderful book for all teens to read . . . along with their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and extended family members. I learned so much about Tangerine and the plights of the area, but more importantly the plights of teenagers in their lives in today's world. A `normal' family (if there is such a thing) two children, one truly gifted and one was . . . well, I'm not going there and spoiling the whole wonderful experience you will have while you read it.
I, like several other reviewers, can't resist recommending it to everyone I know. Including, but not limited to, a Purple Heart recipient and a Commander on a very large city police department; not to mention a doctor and several other healthcare givers along with all friends and acquaintances.
I want to thank the teacher, personally, for her wonderful assignment of Tangerine, along with my grandson, who has the intelligence to know a good book when he reads it! I can't wait for our conversations to begin.
Thank you Edward Bloor for a fantastic read, also Danny De Vito for your insight in your Introduction to this mesmerizing book.
This phenomenal tale of a middle-school aged boy and his family was one THE BEST fictional works I've read this year.
This novel's numerous subjects - family dynamics, family secrets, sports/competition (in particular, the middle-school/high school/college/pro sports "track"/"rat race"/"money chase," social class disparities, pressures on middle-class families, economic disparities, work-ethic, the environment, school "pecking order, physical and mental health disabilities, etc. - all blend together to create a fascinating look at a slice of modern American life.
I don't know if this book is supposed to be in the "young adult"/"pre-teen"/"high school" category - I DO know that this 55 year-old "card-carrying AARP member" thoroughly enjoyed it.
Update-my daughter finished the book and quite enjoyed it. Her class had an online interview with the author, and she is said that there is not going to be a sequel.
