Realistic Fiction, by Roland Smith, Published 2007
When Peak is caught climbing a skyscraper, he’s sent to a juvenile detention center. His father, Josh Woods, gets him out of it by sending him to Chiang Mai, in Thailand, to live with him. Peak has to climb Everest before his fifthteenth birthday to be the youngest man to ever climb everest. Josh leads a group to climb it, along with a monk named Zopa, who brought his son, Sun-Jo. The book included all of the struggles Peak and the others face as they climb Everest. I personally liked the book because I never read a book about mountain climbing before, and it’s interesting to see who makes it to the summit and who doesn’t. Four out of Five stars.
