Paddle Battle

by Eric Howling

A teen boy learns that trusting his team and trying his best helps him accept change and adapt to it.

What if your biggest opponent is yourself?

Finn Hunter has high hopes of making the national kayaking team one day. And he might just make it too, since he made the regional team last year. But this year, since his mom left home, things have been different. Finn is angry, and his paddling and relationship with his teammates are suffering as a result. Can Finn pull it together to achieve his dreams?

Reviews

"The author explores what this young teen goes through when faced with the breakdown of his parents’ marriage. From feeling angry and blaming himself to finding support through his peers, Finn’s character arc is well rounded. The realities of climate change and wildfires and their impacts on the younger generation are also seamlessly woven into the story."
