      This was a very good book. It was about a girl who met this family that drank from a little lake and could live for ever. The girl became close with the family and wanted to drink for the lake. She was told no and the reasons why. many years later the girl passed away and the family was still alive.

        Tuck everlasting is an amazing story. Imagine you are a family and you have a big secret, and this secret is like no other. Your can live forever, yes you are immortal. Being immortal might sound like fun and games but it comes with responsibilities. Moving onto the book, a girl named Winnie finds this family and is shocked when she finds out that these people don't age they simply live forever she is panicked but she must never tell this secret about the spring that keeps them immortal to anyone.

          Imagine if you ran away into the forest, stubbled apon a boy drinking from a spring in a tree, were whisked away on a horse to a homely cottage on a lake and then told that the family you were staying with lived forever? You would be shocked, stunned, surprised; all that. Well, Winnie Foster sure was. When she stubbled upon Jessie Tuck in the forest and was brought back to his familly's house, it took her a while to believe that they were telling the truth. The Tucks could live forever. This is a beautiful, loving, sad story about family, courage, friendship and happiness. I loved reading it :)

            Do you like a good Fiction book with lots of suspension? If you answered yes then Tuck Everlasting by:Natalie Babbitt is the book for you. One reason that I like this book is because it is very descriptive and it is easy to put a picture in your mind. Another reason is because there are many characters and each one has there own personality. ****SPOILER ALERT**** My favorite part was when Mae,Miles,& Jesse kidnapped Winnie and took her to there house so that she would not tell anybody their secret.

              Tuck Everlasting is a good book you should read it and here are a few reasons why. It demonstrates an emotional struggle. It's all about this little girl named Winnie and how she meets the Tucks. The book also shows a lot about figurative language. I am rating this book 5 stars because it is very interesting.

                I really didn't like this book because I thought that this book wasn't really interesting and that the tucks family drinks this spring water to get everlasting life. And I thought it was silly to be able to drink something then talk about this thing.

                      I give this a 2 star because I have read more exciting books then his book. This book reminds me of this tv show that this girl parents do not let her live her life. Tuck everlasting book is about how her parent dont leave her alone so she trys to run away. Then finds this boy and there is this big secret that they are going to tell her so the take her to the house.
