Peak By Roland Smith
Simile: “Peak climbing Mt. Everest, was like a person learning how to ride a bike.” This means that at first it was hard for him like someone just learning how to ride a bike, but once he kept going, it got easier.
Metaphor: “Success for Peak wasn’t just given, it was earned.” This means Peak wasn’t just given success on climbing the mountain. But that he had to earn it. It wasn’t because his dad gave it to him. He had to work himself, to climb Mt. Everest.

My favorite quote from this book is: “You can never tell you the mountain will allow and who it will not.” Other quotes are, “The only thing you'll find on the summit of Mount Everest is a divine view. The things that really matter lie far below.” "You don't have to be alone to feel alone.”
I always felt like Peak did. You never know how life will be. You never know what’s going to happen. You will always have surprises. I also felt when he thought he couldn’t do it, is like when I thought I couldn’t learn something like a song in chorus. But then, we both tried harder at it, and eventually learned how to do both of them.
I really liked this book. I would recommend this to people who like adventurous books. This is a very exciting book. I finished this book in one day. I picked it up and never wanted to stop reading it. It was a fast reading book. I would give this 5/5 stars!
