It was alright, the start was slow and uneventful, but as the book goes on, the excitement unfolds!

This book really touches the heart, even thought it is a very adventurous novel. DJ is so determined, it makes me want to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro!(definitely on the bucket list.) this is a book that is good for ages 9 and up.

Very interesting

I didn't love it actually. I found it emphasized the wrong moments with a lot of misused exclamation points and italics. It was way too predictable, likeā€¦ of course he would make it to the top through all the struggles - nothing I haven't read before!

It's a great book because there were parts that got me interested, especially when DJ was almost at the top of the mountain. The book was very adventurous. He kept continuing his journey, while stuff happened on his way. I really enjoying reading this book.

I honestly loved this book. It is a thriller yet it shows you what pure determination and love can make you achieve things yu never thought you could. I strongly recommend this book to strong or weak readers. This book was filled with everything from love, anger, and determination. Overall I enjoyed this book so much I could harldy put it down!

I liked this book because it's very adventurous and DJ is determined to accomplish the adventure he is given. Also there is a whole series, so if you like one of the books you can read the others!

a great book. i'm not a big reader but this definitely kept my interest. verry descriptive through-ought the entire book. would definitely recommend. yee itz aiiht.
