Peak is the son of two mountainclimbers, and has always been itching to climb higher peaks. But his latest stunt, climbing a skyscraper, lands him in juvenile detention, with the choice of staying in jail or going to Thailand to live with his father, whom he has hardly known at all over the years since his parents divorced. Peak chooses to go with his dad--and finds out that his father doesn't just want to get to know him better; he wants Peak to become the youngest person ever to climb Mount Everest! But will Peak be able to survive the attempt? Great survival story, lots of suspenseful mountain-climbing scenes, and family drama too.
