Four teens set out to climb Everest, but large egos, conflict, and romance get in the way. Will they all make it and return alive?
Jaya, Amy, Logan, and Galen arrive in the Hindu/Buddhist kingdom of Nepal, accompanied by their trainer—Jaya’s dad. If the team succeeds, one million dollars goes to a children’s cancer hospital. Promise of another half million if Jaya sets the record as youngest girl to reach the top is her driving force. She also wants to fulfill her dead mother’s dream of summiting but is scared of the avalanches, deep crevasses, and tumbling towers of ice. But if she backs out or fails, she fears losing her father’s love even more.
Emotions and hormones rush out of control the higher they climb. A saucy Brazilian girl competing with Jaya for the record sabotages the team. Tempers flare between the boys over a dark secret. Jealousies abound. Amy’s crazy about Galen who likes Jaya who’s turned on by their totally hot young Sherpa guide—Tenzing. A moonlight rendezvous on a boulder with prayer flags fluttering in a breeze. Whispers through the wall at night. Will Jaya experience her first love before beginning the final ascent?
