An action-packed adventure about friendship, sacrifice and risking everything for Everest.

Peak Marcello knows he's in trouble when a SWAT team plucks him from a late-night climb up a New York City skyscraper. Given the option of Juvenile Detention or a trip to Thailand to live with his long-lost father who runs a climbing company, the choice seems obvious.

But Peak's father has his own motive for 'rescuing' his son: he wants Peak to be the youngest person to climb Mount Everest. It's an opportunity Peak can't refuse, but it could cost him his life.

'An exciting story that is very believable.' Mateus, 11

'The whole way through I could not put the book down.' Marcus, 11

'Will there be a second?' Gabriel, 13
