Jon Krakauer but I still found it a good read.
As a brief overview, I will say that Peak was the son of two famous mountain climbers and began climbing at a young age. When he gets in trouble with the law, he gets sent overseas with his father where he becomes faced with the climbing opportunity of a lifetime, his 15 minutes of fame and a moral decision that no 14 year old should have to make. I will say no more. Just go out and reserve it from your library if this type of book is right up your alley. This is my life.
