Tuck Everlasting By Natalie Babbit
Tuck Everlasting is the story about a girl named Winnie this other family she meets called the Tucks. The Tucks, you can say were mot similar to other people. They lived forever.They drank water from a spring that was actually a fountain of youth, because of this they had stopped aging and practically nothing could stop them from living. Until the end of the world, they would be the ones alive. Winnie falls in love with one of the Tucks, Jesse, a seventeen-year-old boy who shares the same feelings for her. He really was more than a 100 years old. Scared of death, Winnie must choose between living forever and being with Jesse or following the circle of life and dying someday. The Tucks try to convince her how she shouldn't fear death, and how they would rather be die then stay alive for eternity. I think this book teaches the importance and understanding life and death and how death is not something to be feared of but rather natural and beautiful. I would recommend this book and would probably have to say this was one of the best books I have ever read.
