Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978535367, Paperback)

Jaya, Amy, Galen, and Logan, ages 16 and 17, set out to climb Everest to earn a million dollar donation for a children’s cancer hospital and another half million if Jaya sets the record for youngest girl to stand on top of the world. Her father accompanies them as trainer and coach. In Nepal, they experience the peace of the Sherpa Buddhist culture and gain tremendous respect for this ethnic group without whom no one would reach the summit. Blizzards, avalanches, gaping crevasses, towering blocks of ice, and altitude sickness threaten every step of the way. They soon learn the truth of a quote by Edmund Hillary, the first to summit Everest. “It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” Each teen comes with tough personal issues and makes a life-altering decision by the end. Emotions and hormones rush out of control the higher they climb into thinning air. A saucy Brazilian girl competing with Jaya for the record sabotages the team. Tempers flare between the boys over dark secrets they share. Jealousies abound. Amy’s crazy about Galen who likes Jaya who’s turned on by their totally hot, young Sherpa guide, Tenzing. Will she experience her first love before beginning the final ascent? Will they all reach the roof of the world and return alive?
