As a 30-something, I am aware that this book is written for young adults, but Gemeinhart has the ability to transcend age in order to envelop readers into the life and emotions of the protagonist Mark and his loyal pup Beau. The plot follows an irresistible premise of a young, dying boy in his attempts to climb a treacherous mountain in order to fulfill a promise that he made to himself and his grandfather. Interspersed between chaotic and defeating events, Mark is met by fascinating characters that change the trajectory not only of his quest, but of his life.
