No Summit Out of Sight is about a small boy, named Jordan Romero, being inspired by a painting on his elementary school wall. It was an image of the seven summits, which are the highest mountains of each continent. He and his parents go and practice every day. They soon start climbing each summit. Along the way, they make lots of friends and gain many supporters. They help Jordan get all the way to the top of each mountain. When Jordan feels like he can’t go on any longer, his parents and friends encourage him to never give up.
I personally love No Summit Out of Sight because the flow of the book is very clear. Each mountain has a very vivid description, and I feel like I am there, climbing each summit. He describes everything he is going through, whether it is mental or physical. Even though each page flip could mean life or death for the characters, there is still plenty of humor.
I will always remember this book because it teaches me a very important lesson. Everything needs lots of practice, and you must push yourself to be the best of the best. When you want to give up, remember everything you did to get there.
