              Peak was a very good book about a boy named Peak who's dad is in charge of a expedition on Mount Everest. His dad decides to have Peak try to climb Mount Everest, too. If he does, he will be the youngest person ever to climb Everest, so he decides to do it. He takes a bus up to  the base camp. At the base camp, Peak meets a new friend named Sun-Jo who is 6 days older the Peak! Now Peak is angry at his dad because he thinks he might just be using him for his expedition. After Peak spends some time at some of the other camps,he decides that  he is going to try for the summit. So he is now on the  last ridge and he has 10 more feet left... 5 more feet left... but then he lets Sun-Jo get to the summit first, so Sun-Jo becomes the youngest person ever to summit Mount Everest, not Peak.
