Tuck Everlasting

This book is now in my "cannon" of books to reread, study and digest. The language is beautiful, the plot is fresh and thought-provoking, and the characters are endearing. Natalie Babbit takes the heavy subjects of life, death and immortality and allows the reader to view them from a unique and entertaining angle.

I saw the movie years ago and enjoyed it, but even as good as the movie was, the book is way better than its celluloid double.
