Everest is a book where four kids try to climb to the Summit of Mount Everest. Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world. It is part of the Himalaya Mountain Range and is located on the border between Nepal and Tibet, China. On Mount Everest the weather is harsh and oxygen is low, making it hard to breath and climb. The four kids were all good climbers but needed to work together to climb up Mount Everest. In the story many things go wrong for the kids. They see a lot of other climbers getting hurt. Soon they have to choose between reaching the top of the mountain and saving the lives of other climbers.


I liked this book because it was suspenseful and once you get into it you canít stop reading. If you would like to know about climbing Mount Everest, and you like books that are suspenseful, than this is the book for you!
