My first grandson at age 12 insisted that I read this book. I did and enjoyed it so much that I read it in one day. It was awesome that Jordan got the support of his father, Karen, and what may have been somewhat reluctant support of his mother. It was neat that he had two adults who supported him in his goal.

I especially liked that his next mission was to persuade other youth to believe in and achieve their goals. ( )

No Summit Out of Sight, is a book about Jordan Romero, who was the youngest person to ever climb the 7 (plus one) summits of the world. He completed this by age fifteen. The first mountain he climbed was Kilimanjaro, in Africa. He did not have any problems with this. When they got back they continued his training, which included dragging a tire up and down the driveway from a rope. The next mountain was really just a tall hill, Mount Kosciusko, in Australia. He also climbed this without a problem. He climbed all of the mountains after this but two, Everest and Vinson. When he decides to climb Everest there were lots of arguments about this like whether he was old enough or had enough experience. In the end he was allowed to climb and he did. However about halfway up he ended up in a small avalanche that they thankfully survived. They made it up to the top and had a easy enough climb down. The last mountain, Vinson, had an age limit of 18, therefore there was no debate, he could not climb it. However when he turned 15 they were able to get a permit and he climbed up it. When he got down he had officially climbed the 7 (plus one) summits!

I thought this book was okay. It was written by the Jordan, who was the person who climbed the summits so that was nice. However the book was obviously written to teach lessons For instance, "A lot of people don't make it to the top of the mountains I have trained hard and with the same training anybody can do it" and "We see so trash littering the hike as we go up so we pick it up" Which can sometimes be annoying. Otherwise the book was fine, it was a short read and I would recommend it for people who are doing there Library Thing last minute ( )

This tells the story of Jordan Romero who started climbing the Seven Summits plus one when he was 10. He finished when he was 15 setting records on several of the Summits.

I liked his perseverance. He set his goal of climbing all the Summits and made it. His parents were remarkable helping him to achieve his goal through training, fund-raising, and doing whatever it took to get the permits and equipment. Seeing them work as a family was fantastic. His stepmother was always offering encouragement. His mother was a typical mother--worrying about his safety but she saw the drive and determination and change in him through these climbs. I enjoyed the history of the mountains and the climbing of them as he began each Summit. At times it did get a little preachy about healthy lifestyle but I understand where he is coming from.

Since I will not be climbing the Seven Summits plus one, I was glad to be an armchair traveler as Jordan recounts his experiences on his training, his climbing, and the aftermath of each success. I learned a lot. ( )

I liked this book for the adventure - I love reading about people travelling to other countries and doing things I would never do, like climb Mount Everest.

But the writing fell flat. It was hard to tell how much was actually written by Romero and how much was written by his co-author. Sometimes the writing felt like it was more for a middle-grade audience, and parts were too didactic - Romero would often say things like "I would never do such-and-such thing because it's bad for the environment" or "that's what happens when you don't train as hard my family does." These are all important points - yes, the reader should be kind to the environment, and yes, the reader should properly train before climbing a mountain. But Romero's tone could have been more subtle.

Prologue:

I heard only my labored breathing and the crunch of my crampons biting into the snow as I traversed a nearly vertical slope on the north face of Mount Everest.
Chapter 1

It was the first day of the fourth grade when I told my dad I had decided to climb the highest peak on each of the seven continents: the Seven Summits.
