In The Contest, the first installment of Gordon Korman's Everest trilogy, 20 young mountaineers vie for four spots on SummitQuest — the world's youngest team to ascend Mt. Everest.

A thrilling adventure trilogy from Gordon Korman about a number of kids competing to be the youngest person to ever reach the top of Mt. Everest

Four kids. One mountain.

They come from all across America to be the youngest kid ever to climb Everest. But only one will reach the top first. The competition is fierce. The preparation is intense. The challenge is breathtaking. When the final four reach the higher peaks, disaster strikes — and all that separates the living from the dead is chance, bravery, and action.

Synopsis:

Fierce competition ensues when four kids from across the country compete to be the youngest person to ever climb Mt. Everest.

"Everest" tells the story of a teenage expedition to conquer the world's tallest mountain, a treacherous climb to an altitude so high it has been nicknamed Death Zone. Book one chronicles the tremendous competition between 20 or so kids to be selected as part of the history-making expedition.

Synopsis:

Who will be the youngest person ever to climb Mount Everest? it'sthe ultimate test of endurance and skill. The mountain has claimed the lives of many adults. Now kids are going to compete to break the record. Some are not ready for what they will face. And some will stop at nothing to get to the top.
