When fourteen-year-old Peak Marcello's long-lost father presents the opportunity for them to summit Everest together, Peak doesn't even consider saying no--even though he suspects there are a few strings attached. And if he makes it to the top before his birthday, he'll be the youngest person ever to stand above 29,000 feet. It's not a bad turn of events for a guy who's been stuck in New York City with only skyscrapers to (illegally) scale. Here, in Peak's own words, is the exhilarating, gut-wrenching story of what happened on that climb to the top of the world--a climb that changed everything. Welcome to Mount Everest.

Praise
"This is a thrilling, multifaceted adventure story. Smith includes plenty of mountaineering facts told in vivid detail...But he also explores other issues, such as the selfishness that nearly always accompanies the intensely single-minded. A winner at every level."
From the Publisher
Editors Note After being arrested for scaling a New York skyscraper and then sent to live with his long-lost father and fellow climber, Peak Marcello finds it difficult to rebuild their bond, thus when his father suddenly pushes him to climb Mt. Everest, Peak must take into consideration his father's questionable motives. Reprint.
Editors Note 1 After Peak Marcello is arrested for scaling a New York City skyscraper, he’s left with two choices: wither away in Juvenile Detention or to 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.
