Tuck Everlasting is about a girl named Winnie Foster. She lives by a forest but nobody ever went in there, not even the Fosters. One day, she met the Tucks and she found out that they can't ever die. They drank from a spring in the forest and the water made them live forever. They wanted her to keep the secret about them. Does she keep the secret? Read the story to see what she does.

I think that this is a great book because it is exciting and interesting. My favorite charactor is Miles, because he is nice and caring. He is nice because he brought Winnie for a talk out on the lake so she wouldn't be scared. My favorite part was when Miles caught a fish, and Winnie made him throw it back. She liked being on the boat but she didn't like actually catching fish!

Other people should read this book because it is a real good story . People in fifth grade and up should read it. If third graders want to read it, they should read it together with a grown-up because there are some tough words in there.
