The story of a fourteen year old boy who attempts to not only make the journey up Mount Everest, but be the youngest person to reach the top. As he makes this journey, he also learns more about his father, who he has never really gotten the chance to know. One of my favorite teen books of 2007.

A great adventure book - especially for teen boys!
