In eXtreme Blindside, snowboarder Jake Silver faces unexpected fame after his silver medal win. He tries to balance living his faith, helping to raise new funds for a state-of-art athletic facility, and a relationship with Sophie, his girlfriend and aspiring journalist. 

Jake competes in an extreme winter sports competition. When the games are plagued by equipment tampering, and athletic injuries, Jake and Sophie become amateur sleuths. Someone seems to be interfering with the events and putting people at risk.To reach the truth, they will risk being blindsided by those they trust. 


Wahl’s book keeps the reader engaged with her fast-moving plot, and authenticity in her sports narrative. One feels the crispness of the snow and the thrill of the sporting competition. Their investigation ends up putting both of them into grave danger. The danger is not only from those trying to wreck the games, but from their own struggles with life in the media spotlight.
