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

Imagine coming upon a fountain of youth inside a forest. An ALA Notable Book. To live forever--isn't that everyone's ideal? (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter 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 sooner or later provided the ultimate gift--but doesn't know whether to accept it. For the Tuck family, eternal life is a reality, but their reaction to their fate is surprising. Intense and powerful, exciting and poignant, Tuck Everlasting will final forever--in the reader's imagination. Babbitt asks profound issues about the meaning of life and death, and leaves the reader getting a greater appreciation for the perfect cycle of nature.
