  Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Review by: Alex S.
Minnesota, Grade 10

Tuck Everlasting is about a family who doesnít grow old and they cannot die. The book is set in August late 1800ís and early 1900ís. When I saw the movie for Tuck Everlasting I wanted to read the book. If you read the book then you just ruin the movie for yourself and others. When I watched the movie I had to read the book, but I knew what was going on in the book from the movie so as I was reading Tuck Everlasting the movie played through my head and I understood the book better.

This story begins on a hot August day and Winnie Foster is in the front of the house with a toad. Winnie wants to run away but canít bring herself to do it. Later on she meets the Tucks and they are accused of kidnapping Winnie and they tell her their big, big secret. Mae Tuck is charged for killing a guy and with their secret she wouldnít die even if she wanted to. So she has to get out of jail and get away before the Constable takes her to the gallows.

I liked the book because it has this mystery thing about it. I would recommend this book to teenagers more than adults, because it deals with kids growing up in to teenagers and making choices. This book would take anyone on an adventure to see what would happen next to Winnie and the Tucks.
