Tuck Everlasting
by Natalie Babbitt

Review # 1
* * * * Stars (Great!)
Tuck and his family captured a girl named Winnie. They wish she was theirs because they haven’t seen change in almost 80 years. When the man takes Tuck’s horse and tells Winnie’s parents where she is, the man and the constable go looking for her. Will they ever find Winnie?

* * * * Stars (Great!)
I loved how the girl was so innocent and sweet. The only reason I didn’t rate it five stars was because the ending was pretty much at the end of the book.  I also loved the innocent in the book itself. There weren’t any intimate parts or anything inappropriate.

Review #3
* Star (A waste of time!)
“Tuck Everlasting” follows the protagonist, Winnie Foster, who is a young girl who is faced with the decision to live forever, or to let her life continue as planned. When Winnie meets the Tuck family, she is exposed to a spring that allows people to receive the power of immortality, as drinking the water grants magical purposes to the one that beholds it.

I didn’t enjoy this book since I didn’t like the plot of the book, as it was choppy and personally uninteresting to me. I don’t know if the characters are particularly good role models, but Tuck and Mae do have an interesting perspective that only their situation could create and they have good intentions. I don’t really like the romance in the book, as I feel that it is sort of awkward and uninteresting. For grade school and middle school kids.
