Storyboard Text

  • The characters in Tangerine are Paul, Mike, Joey, Victor, Erik, Arthur, Tino, Henry, Theresa, and Luis. Paul is the main character, and his brother is Erik. One of Erik's friends is Arthur. They do a lot of bad things together. For example, they robbed citizens of Lake Windsor, and they almost killed someone.
  • The setting of the story is in Tangerine County, Florida, in the fall of 1997. It starts out being very hot but then it gets cooler so Paul's family has to wear winter clothes.
  • I think that the theme of this book is be kind to everyone. At the beginning of the story, kids make fun of Paul's glasses. They later figure out that he is a great soccer player, and they need him for their team. He works very hard at soccer and helping people.
  • The rising action is when Erik meets his friend Arthur, and they do some bad things to other people. Also, Paul plays soccer for Tangerine Middle School. I think this is the rising action because it is starting to get to the important part of the book. 
  • The exposition is when Paul's family moves to Florida. This is the exposition because the reader meets most of the characters and learns the setting.
  • The climax is when Paul goes and helps out on the tangerine farm. He realizes what a different life he has from the people who live just one town away. Also, this is when Erik and his friend start to get noticed when they rob people. This is the climax because it is the most important and exciting part of the book.
  • The falling action is when Erik and Arthur are caught for robbing and killing someone. This is the falling action because it is starting to wrap up or finish the book.
  • The resolution is when Paul's grandparents leave, and he learns how he got glasses. This is the resolution because it finishes the story and shows the meaning of the book.  Paul understands that it is important to treat others the way he would like to be treated.
