Peak Marcello is scaling the Woolworth Building, for the purpose of leaving his "tag," when he's apprehended. He has a choice--spend time in "juvie" or travel to Thailand with his estranged father, whom he hasn't heard from for seven years. It seems like a no-brainer 'til he discovers Dad's plan to use him to save his foundering climbing company. Ramon de Ocampo delivers this first-person narrative, capturing the excitement and uncertainty of a young man learning lessons in life, family, and friendship. Peak learns the importance of balancing man's need for challenge and adventure with the world's need to practice wise dominion over our planet. One minor complaint: de Ocampo's voice seems too old for a 14-year-old. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
