by Roland Smith

One of the best books I have ever read was Peak by Roland Smith. I was sucked in by the first page. I have read a bunch of books by Roland Smith but this one is sure to be the best.

This book is about 14 year–old Peak Marcello from New York. He loves climbing. There are no mountains in New York City so he decides to scale sky scrapers. This is not legal in New York and he gets caught by the police. He has a choice: he can move to China with his dad who he doesn’t even know because his parents are divorced, or he can go to juvi. He does not want to go to jail so he decides to go with his dad. He goes and climbs the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. He faces many hardships and meets characters like Sun-Jo and Zopa. This book is amazing.

    I thought it was called Peak because of climbing to the peak I didn’t know it was his name. Any way I wonder how good it is. I might try it. Also that was a great review it really tells me a lot.
