From the Publisher:
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.
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.
        

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." 4/1/2007
