When I ask students to summarize the plot of a novel, I tell them to list the most important events in the order they happened. I usually give them the first couple of events, and then the last event. I have them fill in between the beginning events and the final event.
The first major event is that Paul and his family move to Florida from Houston, requiring Paul, who is legally blind, to try and adjust to new surroundings, a new school, and new people. Introduce the remaining members of the family, giving only the most important information about them, especially Paul's brother, Erik, who mistreats him. Focus on what life is like for Paul until he transfers to Tangerine Middle School, explaining how Tangerine is different from everywhere else. It should be easy from that point to describe the events leading up to Paul attending the Catholic school and attempting to create some kind of relationship with his dad.
