Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Tuck Everlasting Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Imagine coming upon a fountain of youth in a forest. To live forever--isn't that everyone's ideal? For the Tuck family, eternal life is a reality, but their reaction to their fate is surprising. Award winner Natalie Babbitt (Knee-Knock Rise, The Search for Delicious) outdoes herself in this sensitive, moving adventure in which 10-year-old Winnie Foster is kidnapped, finds herself helping a murderer out of jail, and is eventually offered the ultimate gift--but doesn't know whether to accept it. Babbitt asks profound questions about the meaning of life and death, and leaves the reader with a greater appreciation for the perfect cycle of nature. Intense and powerful, exciting and poignant, Tuck Everlasting will last forever--in the reader's imagination. An ALA Notable Book.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very enjoyable book that asks a thought provoking question. Would you choose to be immortal if you were given the chance?

I enjoyed meeting the Tucks and Winnie Foster.

This is the best book I have ever read! It's so poetic and beautifully written! I love it! At first I thought it was going to be a very boring sappy book, but it was really exciting! I recommend this book to EVERYONE!
