This book is a really great book. Though it is a little low on the reading level, it is still a good book. It is about a boy who wants to be the youngest to climb Mount Everest and he makes it. It teaches some important lessons about trying hard and not being overconfident. Overall, this book is a good read when you are bored at any time.
