Teacher Guide: Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

When Winnie Foster tires of her life in the Touch-me-not Cottage, she runs away into Tree Gap Wood. There she discovers two mysteries: a secret spring that gives eternal life to all who drink from it and the Tuck family, who claim to have experienced the magic first hand. In an effort to protect both Winnie and the world from the powerful and dangerous water, the Tucks kidnap Winnie, who must decide what to believe.
