Review of Peak by andrew w

Peak, by Roland Smith, is about a 14 year old boy who loves to rock climb. The book starts off by him climbing skyscrapers in New York City but soon leads him to other places. His dad brings Peak to Mount Everest where his adventure starts. He gets all the right climbing gear for Everest while his dad makes all the arrangements for the climb. Peak's father is a world famous climber and so was his mom until she hurt her leg and never climbed again. He soon meats his dad's friend Zopa and his grandson Sun-jo. Sun-jo is also 14 years old and is trying to be the youngest person to reach the top of everest. The only problem is so is Peak. They climb the mountain together while Sun-jo avoids the Chinese police. Sun-jo doesn't have a climbing permit so he must hide when ever there are pass checks. when they all finally reach the top, Peak lets Sun-jo get to the top and he heads back down. Zopa's family needs the money more than Peak's so Peak allows him to get it.
