1.What would your parents do if you got caught doing what Peak did?
 
2.Another boy copies Peak and dies while trying to climb and tag a building. Is his death Peak's fault? Would you feel bad about it if you were in Peak's position?
 
3.While he's in jail Peak's mom tells him that he's "circling the drain." What does she mean by this?
 
4.Peak's real dad wants him to call him "Josh" instead of "dad," why? Do you end up liking Josh? Would he be a good dad?
 
5.There's a lot of talk about acclimatizing in the book, what's "acclimatizing"?
 
6.At various points in the expedition Peak finds himself happy that Sun-jo isn't feeling so well or climbing very strongly, why is this? Why was he so mad at Sun-jo and Zopa when he found out that they were related?
 
7.Peak's mom tells him he needs to stop thinking about the family if he's going to make the summit that "to climb at Josh's level you have to be completely selfish." Do you think this is true? Is Josh selfish? Is Peak selfish when he's climbing?
 
8.Back at home Peak gets the message that Sun-jo and his sisters are enjoying the birthday present that Peak had given him. What was the present?
