“Peak” by Roland Smith

“Peak” by Roland Smith is an enjoyable novel about a boy who climbs Mount Everest.

Peak Marcello has always loved to climb, but New York City doesn’t offer many opportunities for rock climbing. When he is arrested for illegally climbing a skyscraper his biological father comes to the rescue, offering to take him under his control. To Peak’s surprise, he then presents an opportunity for them to summit Mount Everest together.

To Peak this is a dream come true, but when he actually reaches the slopes, he finds himself at the center of a vast web of conflicting interests. His father wants Peak to reach the summit so that publicity can help his failing climbing company. Caught in the competitive atmosphere, Peak must make major decisions about what really matters.

“Peak” is not merely about the character’s ascent of Mount Everest, its about how Peak matures and how the experience helps him to develop as a person who cares about others, not just himself. Roland Smith skillfully ties the book together with lively characters and a relaxed writing style. I would recommend “Peak” as an great adventure novel with a meaningful plot.
