Tuck Everlasting

Written by Natalie Babbitt

Reviewed by Angel F. (age 9)

This story is about a family who drinks a special water, which makes them stay the age they are forever. They travel a lot so no one will notice that they stay the same age. They don?t want strangers to think that they?re witches or something! I think this book is a great book because there is a very important lesson in the story. My favorite part is when one of the characters risks her life to save a tiny little frog. I liked this part because the character, Winnie, isn?t selfish and doesn?t only care about herself.

Winnie finds out about the family?s secret but doesn?t tell anyone. She helps one of the family members get out of jail because the police may have to kill her for doing something bad. The problem is that when they try to kill her, she won?t die and then the secret will be out. I wonder what would happen if someone actually did try to kill one of them?

I recommend this book to people who like action and a great story!
