Tuck Everlasting

(Originally published by Nattie on November 10, 2003)
I’m rereading this book for the first time as an adult. The story still enchants me. It still haunts me. The hopeless romantic in me doesn’t like the ending, but the author helps you understand why it has to end the way it does.
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt is a classic and is not easily forgotten.

\Winnie Foster a 10-year-old little girl is feeling stiffled by her life. She sits on a neatly clipped lawn inside a fence and rarely goes outside this boundary. One day she decides to run away. She doesn’t go far. She goes to the woods that her family owns that borders their property. She wonders why she’s never gone there before. Then she meets the most beautiful boy–Jesse Tuck. She is kidnapped and told the most fascinating story. The Tucks–Mae, Angus, Miles and Jesse–have found the fountain of youth.
What would you do if you could be young forever? The Tucks would change your mind. They help you respect the circle of life.
Winnie’s life changed forever the day she decided to run away. My life changed when I read this book. While I dream of never growing old—or possibly reclaiming 22–I know that for everything there is a season.
If you have never read this classic novel my Natalie Babbitt. Please do so today.
