I will definitely read another book like this one by Ronald Smith just because I love stupid, sarcastic boys.
Good Points
I love love love how much of a smartass and dumbass Peak is in this story. I also love how real this story is about how Tibetans are prisoners in their own country because of the Chinese soldiers. This story was so realistic about how much Peak hated his dad but still forgave him because he’s the only dad Peak has.
