I'm going to move to Tangerine Middle.
Paul and his friend Joey at their new school, Tangerine Middle School.
At the new middle school, Paul joined the soccer team. He wasn't allowed to at his other school because he was legally blind. He played goalie and his friend Joey was also on the team. During one game, he was hit in the face with the ball.
Erik, Paul's older brother, hits another student named Tino hard across the face, because Tino was making fun of how he played at his football game. Erik can be pretty mean.
Erik told his friend, Arthur, to hit Luis Cruz, while Erik hid behind the bleachers. Arthur hit Luis and a week later, Luis died as a result of his injuries.
