Peak by Ronald Smith is an action filled realistic fiction novel. I liked this book because it made me want to keep reading it from beginning to end because of all the adventure going on in the book at once.This story takes place in New York City and Asia. The major conflict in this book is that after being arrested for climbing a skyscraper, Peak has to live with his father in Thailand and is planning on climbing Mount Everest while he is there. Peak thinks he is going to bond with his father but his father actually wants Peak to be the youngest person to reach the peak of Everest for the fame and fortune. Another kid though is trying to also be the youngest to climb Everest. Him and Peak battle to get to the top and learn a lesson from it. The story is told by Peak in the first person. I liked how the author wrote this book because he didn't make things complicated to understand and it was simple to read. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a thrilling story. Anyone who reads this book will get an adventure out of it.

I am probably the only one who dosen't like this book

It's not just about mountain climbing. don't get me wrong it was an alright book, but i guess it didn't really get to me. it's relatable to a certain extent. to me the book is very interest oriented. overal it's an okay novel to read.

    In the book Peak, a young boy named Peak Marcello gets into trouble for climbing a New York skyscraper. His parents, who are divorced, decide he should get away from the city and go climb Mt. Everest with his dad’s climbing company. His dad has an old friend help get Peak and his grandson, Sun-jo, acclimated to the thin air. Once they start the climb, and get into the death zone, they see their first corpse. After Peak gets to within ten feet of the top of the world, he decides to stop and do something unthinkable. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an adventure because it’s a story about aclimbing Everest. Also, I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a heart-warming story because something happens that changes Sun-jo’s life, and you’ll have to read it to find out what Peak does for him.

    Not quite to the summit of Mount Everest

    There was a lot of factual information in this book like HAPE. The author explained to us what it was and the dangers of it. This book did not have enough action there was more drama and preperation to climb the Mountain than there was action. It was not a great book.
