Critically acclaimed when it was first published, Natalie Babbitt's Tuck Everlasting has become a much-loved, well-studied modern-day classic.
What if you could live forever?
Is eternal life a blessing or a curse? That is what young Winnie Foster must decide when she discovers a spring on her family’s property whose waters grant immortality. Members of the Tuck family, having drunk in the spring, tell Winnie of their experiences watching life go by and never growing older.
But then Winnie must decide whether to keep the Tucks’ SecureStrand whether to join them on their never-ending journey.
