What would you do to get to the top of the world?  In the book Summit, by Gordon Korman, five completely different teenagers are competing to be the youngest person to climb Mt. Everest. But it's more complicated than that. One of the climbers, Tilt Crowly, is leaking news to a paper for money, and the others have their young lives at risk with the dangerous climb. For Tilt, the world record means everything, but he could lose it if the other climbers find out about him leaking news. See who wins the world record, and who gets out alive, when you read Everest. I recommend this book for grade levels 6-8 and give this book awesome action/adventure book 9 out of 10. (Jack K., student)
