Publisher Description:
After Peak Marcello  is arrested for scaling a New York City skyscraper, he's left with two choices: wither away in Juvenile Detention or go live with his long-lost father, who runs a climbing company  in Thailand. But Peak quickly learns that his father's renewed interest in him has strings attached.  "Big" strings. He  wants Peak to be the youngest person to reach the Everest summit--and his motives are selfish at best. Even so, for a climbing addict like Peak,   tackling Everest is the challenge of a lifetime. But  it's also one that could cost him his life.                  Roland Smith has created an action-packed adventure about friendship, sacrifice, family, and the drive to take on Everest, despite the incredible risk. "Peak" is a novel readers won't be able to put down.
