6 Apr

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Plot: 10-year-old Winnie Foster accidentally discovers the Tuck family on her family’s property, who have been given eternal life by drinking the water from a stream on the property. Winnie is intrigued by the Tuck family and their story of immortality. A stranger overhears the Tuck’s story and hatches a plot to take control of the land and the stream, enabling him to benefit from the sale of the water. The Tucks defend themselves, and Winnie risks a great deal to help the Tucks escape. Jesse Tuck, who will eternally be 17-years-old, offers Winnie the opportunity to drink the water when she is also 17-years-old, so they can spend eternity together. Will she join the Tuck family in everlasting life?

Would you recommend this book? Yes. Although Winnie Foster is a 10-year-old child, this book has appeal to older audiences.
