Peak, yes that’s his name (his parents are well known mountain climbers), has a need to climb. But in NYC there aren’t any nearby mountains to climb, but there are skyscrapers. Peak is caught scaling a sky scraper and attempting to tag the top. His mother and stepfather are at a loss as to what to do, and Peak almost ends up in juvenile detention. Luckily for Peak, his long-absent father steps in to save the day. Peak soon finds himself at the base camp of Mt. Everest on the Chinese side. His father would like him, and fully expects him, to become the youngest person ever to summit Mt. Everest. If the mountain doesn’t get to him first. http://www.nancykeane.com
