by Roland Smith
When 14-year-old Peak Marcello is caught scaling a skyscraper to place his signature graffiti tag, he is offered a choice: spend three years in juvenile detention, or climb Mt. Everest with his long-absent father. And though the choice might be easy, the journey is not. Peak is physically and emotionally challenged by the grueling climb, the weather, and the politics and drama of climbing culture. Oh, and the pressure is on, because if Peak can reach the summit before his 15th birthday, he'll break a world record and gain glory and money. Roland Smith's Peak is gripping and surprising. I really enjoyed this book and it is a great read for anyone, young or old.
