The Edge, by Roland Smith

Summary: Fifteen-year-old Peak Marcello is invited to participate in an “International Peace Ascent” in the Hindu Kush, with a team made up of under-eighteen-year-old climbers from around the world–but from the first something seems wrong, so when the group is attacked, and most of the climbers are either killed or kidnapped, Peak finds himself caught up in a struggle to survive, shadowed by the Shen, a mysterious snow leopard.

One thought on “The Edge, by Roland Smith

  1. I enjoyed this book very much. The plot and characters as well as the setting were are very well developed. The style of writing was the only thing that I didn’t really like. Overall this was a great book and I’d definitely recommend it. This is a newbery winner for me.
