Everest: Book One: The Contest by Gordon Korman

A good Young Adult for the young adventurer in your life. A contest...a win...a dream come true. Who will be the next youngest person to climb Everest? There's actually a contest within a contest here. First you have to win by collecting the words that spell EVEREST, and then once you've one, you're competing with others to see who will be in the final pick to do the actual climb with a chance to be the youngest to ever climb everest, and therein lies the story. A group of adolescents who are competing against each other for those few spots include a troublemaker, a few with various problems, and a few to whom climbing is everything! Who wins the coveted spots, and how does it all work out? I'm off to read the next one in the series! Know any young adventurous types who might like a cool story to read and be entertained by?
