Tuck Everlasting, by Natalie Babbit

IndieBound Description: Doomed to—or blessed with—eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing that it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune.

My Thoughts: Another wonderful Natalie Babbit book! She is one of my favorite authors. If you remember when I highlighted another of her books, I put off reading this book as a child because I so fell in love with Search for Delicious that I didn't want to read anything else by her because I was afraid I would be disappointed! But when I finally read it, I was disappointed that I did not read it earlier.

This is a fascinating book that still holds up, considering how long ago it was written. Everything about it was beautifully done.
