This book was great! It was a heart pounding story about the climb up Mt. Everest.It really kept my attention, so I'm pretty sure it will keep yours! This book is one of the best action novels I have ever read. It mixes the style of Jon Krakuar and Anotolie's writing, and gives it a deadly twist. It also shows the strength of human courage. I highly recommend this book.

My son is eight and he really loves this book. He is intrigued by the challenges these boys face and their tenacity. It's written in a conversational style with hip language. He has really found the joy of a page turner in this book. I'm giving the series to his buddies for birthday gifts.

This book is about 4 kids and they are trying to climb mt. everest. The climb that was supposed to be fun but also hard turned into a matter of life and death. One of the youngest climbers get air sickness and gets lowered to the base by airplane. As he slowly gets better he wants to complete the climb. So when he gets out he goes and helps the sherpas carry things over the lowest mountian. Slowly he gets used to the air and he decides to try to complete the climb. To find out if he makes it or not you should really read this book!

This book was very well written and fun to read, but I would not go as far to say that it is a page turning novel. But I would still recomment this book to people who like survival stories as it was good.
