Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
This book is a fairytale in everything that implies: it has beautiful, musical language, it creates pictures in your mind as you read the words, it teaches a big lesson in a simple way, it’s a book I can see myself reading to a child of mine.
Is eternal life a blessing or a curse? That is what young Winnie Foster must decide when she discovers a spring on her family’s property whose waters grant immortality. Members of the Tuck family, having drunk from the spring, tell Winnie of their experiences watching life go by and never growing older.
But then Winnie must decide whether or not to keep the Tucks’ secret – and whether or not to join them on their never-ending journey.
