The kids from Lost at Sea are back, climbing in the majestic and dangerous peaks of Nepal. Orrie is so mad at her dad and his girlfriend, Libby, that she can’t see straight. Orrie’s brother Jack is trying to prove he’s a real man, so the girls back at school won’t laugh at him. Their little brother, Andy, is talking to a dead yak, who is listening very carefully. The entire family is freezing to death at 20,000 feet. This nail-biting adventure novel about a family full of love and anger, told in the unique alternating voices of the witty and earnest Jack and Orrie, will keep readers riveted from the first page to the last.
