Such a great book and an awesome movie too!
This book is awesome! The whole thing of a family living forever is cool. I wouldn't wanna do it but it's cool to read about it.
It is soo romantic. Jesse is sooo amazing! When I was in 5th grade I had to read it in reading groups for school and there was this boy I had fallen in love with in my group named Jesse. I had to talk about the characters and I would say how much I love Jesse and how awesome Jesse is and they thought I was talking about Jesse Tuck from the book while the whole time I was talking about the boy sitting next to me.
This book gave me a way to say what I was afraid to without anyone knowing it.
This book is sooo cool. I would reccemend it to anyone.

Tuck Everlasting is SO great! I loved it! It was SO ROMANTIC! WAIT I DON'T LIKE ROMANCE!!! But who cares it was AWESOME! I have read very few books that are better! I'm not the type of girl that likes all that romance stuff but it was SO cool!
I didn't feel like reading it, then my sis read it and told me it was awesome so to make her happy (WAIT NOW I WANT PEOPLE TO BE HAPPY? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!) i read it, i was doubtfull at the start, but I ended up LOVING IT! Read it and I KNOW you will love it too!
As a young girl walks through the deep parts of the wood, she happens to stumble aupon a boy drink water.
Looks like ordinary water u will find anywhere.
But this water has powers. the power to keep you from ageing.
Some might say this is a great power but not everyone will agree.
Not able to age is a curse.
Seeing ur children age while you stay the same.
A curse that she will not want to take or will she.
FInd out in this page turning novel.
read it in 7th grade and still remember how great it was
I read Tuck Everlasting for school and I really liked it.The concept of living forever was an interestingtopic for the book. The author did a really good job with writing about the characters, I felt as if i really knew them. This book was fun to read and to think about and I really reccomend it.
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt poses the question if you could choose to live forever, would you really do it? The book begins with Winnie Foster, who is nearly 11 years old sneaking off in the woods near her house to get away from her uptight family for a day. Thats when she meets the Tuck family who tell her their story of drinking water from a spring and living forever. They tell her not to tell anyone their secret and try to convince her of the negative aspects of eternal life. One is clearly that they have to hide and cant form lasting relationships. Thats hardest on Jesse who has been 17 for a very long time (87 years) with no chance at love. Miles is the older brother who once had a wife and kids that left him when they saw he wasnt getting any older. Then there is Ma Mae and Pa who also had to live the accusations that they were into witchcraft and were forced with their sons to become nomads.
After hearing their miraculous story and spending time with them, Winnie starts to feel for them, especially lonely (and incredibly handsome) Jesse. She has to make a choice. She could drink from the well now and stay 11, go back home and come back when shes Jesses age and drink, or simply walk away and live a normal life.
The story is a great little fantasy piece with characters you come to care about deeply and a fascinating narrative hook. I highly recommend it, even for older teens and adults.

This is by far one of the best books i have ever read and will keep you guessing whats going to happen next until you finish the book. Whinnie a young girl who meets a Peculiar family named the Tucks. She later finds out that they are immortal because they have drank from the fountain of youth that is on her fathers property. Now she if faced with the decision on wether to live with the Tucks and her crush Jesse or to live out a normal life.
Tuck Everlasting was one of my favorite books ever read. It was a fast read but yet caught my attention. it was full of laughs and adventure, it even made me cry at then end. It's about a family that drank water from a lake and the water made them become immortal - they would never die. A girl names winnie and her fmaily owned the woods with the water in it. She witnessed jesse by the water drinking it so they kidnapped her, scared that she would tell there lifes biggest secret. The book is full of adventure and romance. i would really recomend this book to people who are into ramances and adventureistic books. its a very great book for y oung readers. id say to about the age of 13 and up. This book, i never got bored with liek some, liek i said its a fast read and it had my full atention. its honestly a great book for anyone.
I have read this book at least 7 times. It is so good. The ending is very sad. The movie is also really good, but they changed a lot. If you see the movie, read the book. If you read the book, see the movie!
