Rating: ★★★★☆

Summary from Goodreads: Doomed to - or blessed with - eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing that it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune.

Review: I fell in love with this story when the movie came out, but I have to say the book wasn't as appealing to me. Where was the magic I loved so much?! It was mostly a story about the kidnapping of a little girl. The book was interesting non the less, but not what I had hoped for.
