Peak (Peak #1) by Roland SmithThe only thing you’ll find on the summit of Mount Everest is a divine view. The things that really matter lie far below. – Peak Marcello
After fourteen-year-old Peak Marcello is arrested for scaling a New York City skyscraper, hes left with two choices: wither away in Juvenile Detention or go live with his long-lost father, who runs a climbing company in Thailand. But Peak quickly learns that his fathers renewed interest in him has strings attached. Big strings. As owner of Peak Expeditions, he wants his son to be the youngest person to reach the Everest summit--and his motives are selfish at best. Even so, for a climbing addict like Peak, tackling Everest is the challenge of a lifetime. But its also one that could cost him his life.
Roland Smith has created an action-packed adventure about friendship, sacrifice, family, and the drive to take on Everest, despite the incredible risk. The story of Peak’s dangerous ascent—told in his own words—is suspenseful, immediate, and impossible to put down.

Book Trailer for Peak by Roland Smith
Reading Level : Middle Grades, ages Everest make compelling reading for middle-graders on up. The last thirty feet are torture, especially after one side of his face freezes to the surface. With an effort of supreme will, he tears it off and makes his mark. But before he can take any pride in the accomplishment, a light blinds him and the rotor blades of an NYPD helicopter nearly blow him off the wall—the wall of the Woolworth building. Not your standard-issue troubled teen, the fourteen-year-old title character nonetheless has some ambivalent feelings toward his mother and stepfather. Not only that, his dad offers to take him out of the country in exchange for clearing his record.
