Tuck Everlasting by Natalie BabbittIs eternal life a blessing or a curse? Members of the Tuck family, having drunk from the spring, tell Winnie of their experiences watching life go by and never growing older. It lingers on, haunting your waking hours, making you ponder.

The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot.
