    'So are we gonna look at inkblots or what?'

    When a friend recommended this book I didn't think I'd be able to get into it but I totally did. I loved Sammi's character. Gordon Korman has done it again, fantastic!

    Everest - Book One: The Contest - Good book

    This book is a good book. The main characters, Chris and Dominic, are brothers in this book. Chris is one of the best climbers in the world. He is tough, strong, and fit. Dominic is determined and willing in the training camp. The genre of this book is an adventure book. The story takes place in a country called Nepal. The theme of this book is kids that have to win a contest to be able to go to training camp. But even though if they win the contest they could still be cut. This is what made this book exiting. If you are the type of person that likes adventure and excitement you should read this book. In my opinion I liked Everest better than Island, but Island is a great book also. They are both written by Gordon Korman. I think that Everest is better than Island because the adventure in Everest makes it more exciting than Island. I was shocked with some of the kids that they cut from the training. This book is one of the best adventure books that I have ever read. It is a good book for kids because it boes not have alot of big words that are hard to understand. I think it is better to read the book for a good 30 min. so you have time to get the emotions and get into the book.
