Giant Boulder Question

I recently got a Giant Boulder (not Boulder SE), last May, and have a rough time getting into the last gears (3 and 7). I can pop the gears into place but the crank goes half way around and then the gears slip in and out of place....am I doing something wrong? I know I'm pedaling hard enough for last gear.

Thanks

Your derailer needs adjustment. Take it a bike shop and they can give you a tune up.

Or figure out how to do it yourself and change some money.
