Description

Roland Smith's novels for young adults have received wide acclaim from publications such as Library Journal and Booklist for their intense realism. Peak Marcello is a 14-year-old who loves to climb things. Unfortunately, living in New York City makes his hobby difficult. After a run-in with the law, Peak is presented two options: endure Juvenile Detention or reconnect with his estranged father, who runs a climbing operation in Thailand. The choice is easy for Peak, but his father has an ulterior motive for their reunion-he wants his son to risk his life and become the youngest person to ever scale Mount Everest.

Professional reviews

"Peak Marcello is scaling the Woolworth Building, for the purpose of leaving his "tag," when he's apprehended. He has a choice--spend time in "juvie" or travel to Thailand with his estranged father, whom he hasn't heard from for seven years. It seems like a no-brainer 'til he discovers Dad's plan to use him to save his foundering climbing company. Ramon de Ocampo delivers this first-person narrative, capturing the excitement and uncertainty of a young man learning lessons in life, family, and friendship. Peak learns the importance of balancing man's need for challenge and adventure with the world's need to practice wise dominion over our planet. One minor complaint: de Ocampo's voice seems too old for a 14-year-old. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
