6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Ashleigh’s entry. Thanks, Ashleigh!
Scholastic Inc. 246p.
Peak decides to climb a skyscraper in New York. He was going to attempt this in June, but everything was ready for him to do this and he doesn’t like waiting, so he did this stunt in March. Unfortunately he got caught by the swat team. He had to go to JDC until his parents could pay off the fee, or until his court date.
After peak got out of JDC his dad took him to stay with him. But, they didn’t go to his house. They went to Mt. Everest instead to climb the mountain. They stayed at base camp for a while then tried to make it to the summit before Peaks birthday. If they made it before Peaks birthday he would be that youngest person in the world to reach the summit.
Peak is very much like his dad. His dad is very adventurist and so is Peak. They are both very kind and can take care of themselves.
What I liked most about this book was the adventure. I also liked learning about Mt. Everest. My all time favorite part was when Peak thought he was going to his dad’s house when he didn’t.
I think that anybody would love this book. But I think that people who are more into adventures books would like it more.
