Jordan Romero climbed Mount Everest at age thirteen—and he didn’t stop there. In this inspiring young adult memoir, he tells how he achieved such great heights.
On May 22, 2010, at the age of thirteen, American teenager Jordan Romero became the youngest person to climb to the summit of Mount Everest. At fifteen, he became the youngest person to reach the summits of the tallest mountains on each of the seven continents. In this energizing memoir for young adults, Jordan, now seventeen, recounts his experience, which started as a spark of an idea at the age of nine and, many years of training and hard work later, turned into a dream come true.
Wow, wow, wow! A fifteen year old kid climbing the seven summits. Is that awesome or what?!
And another thing to wow over…I am reviewing a non fiction book! That is almost a first. I think I have reviewed a non fiction book before.
As for the title, yes, No Summit Out of Sight is not the full title. No Summit Out of Sight: The True Story of the Youngest Person to Climb the Seven Summits is the correct and proper title. I just didn’t want that to be my post’s title; it is quite a mouthful.
The book is super good. I really enjoyed reading it, and couldn’t wait to read about him climbing to the summit of each mountain.
The cover is wonderful. He is above clouds. I mean, I have climbed Copper Peak in Michigan and thought that I was high up (which I really was). But, I can’t imagine being (literally) on top of the world. Four stars!
This is truly an inspiring story. I would like to give this book five stars. For it being a non fiction book, I enjoyed it a lot.
