Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt -- A Recommendation

~Imagine coming upon a fountain of youth in a forest. To live forever--isn't that everyone's ideal? For the Tuck family, eternal life is a reality, but their reaction to their fate is surprising. Award winner Natalie Babbitt outdoes herself in this sensitive, moving adventure in which 10-year-old Winnie Foster is kidnapped, finds herself helping a murderer out of jail, and is eventually offered the ultimate gift--but doesn't know whether to accept it. Babbitt asks profound questions about the meaning of life and death, and leaves the reader with a greater appreciation for the perfect cycle of nature. Intense and powerful, exciting and poignant, Tuck Everlasting will last forever--in the reader's imagination. ~

I read this, I believe in the 5th grade. It always stuck with me. It made me think and years ago I went and bought my own copy as I felt it a must for every book collection. I don’t think I need to say a lot as the description above really says it all. If that doesn't spike your curiosity then nothing I say will.

P.S. The movie does not do it justice and I don’t recommend it.
