"My name is Peak. Yeah, I know: weird name. But you don't get to pick your name or your parents. (Or a lot of other things in life for that matter.) It could have been worse. My parents could have named me Glacier, or Abyss, or Crampon. I'm not kidding. According to my mom all those names were on the list."

A decision is made that he leaves New York until news about the sky scraper has died down. Peak goes to live with his father in Nepal. His father, a climbing guide and an outstanding climber, brings him along on his climbing expedition on Everest. Peak's dad is determined to get Peak to the top. This book follows Peak Marcello on his journey to the top of the highest mountain in the world. But as said in the book, “You can never tell you the mountain will allow and who it will not.”
