Tuck everlasting : [a novel]

A moving and superb piece of storytelling, the theme of this book is no less profound than the meaning and place of death in the universe of living things, handled, however, by Babbitt in a deft and gentle manner and with believable characters that never lose touch with her young audiences. The Tuck family are doomed to - or blessed with eternal life after drinking from a magic spring. Ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret and the Tucks take her home and try to explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing than it might seem. Trouble arises when a stranger who follows Winnie wants to market the spring water for a fortune.
