Cade's dad thinks triathlons are for wimps. He doesn't think it's a real sport and wishes Cade would play football instead, like his older brother, Trent. So Cade trains in secret and qualifies to compete in the provincial championship in Sylvan Lake. The night before the event, Cade's coach suddenly can't go, and Cade is forced to ask his dad for a ride there. He only agrees because Trent has a football game nearby. The road trip takes a nasty turn when his dad swerves to avoid a deer and their car hurtles into an ice-cold river. It's up to Cade to use his skills to save his entire family.

School Library Journal - January 26, 2018
"Sports fans will be drawn to the book by it's subject matter. The fully developed characters and story line packs a punch."
CM Magazine - October 5, 2017
"Very entertaining story…I hope that Eric Howling's Plunge encourages many to find an organization or an athlete willing to introduce the triathlon to them. Highly Recommended."
