Really good book with strong character and a modern classic plot. A young girl dealing with right and wrong, decision making and learning from the experiences of others. Good reasons this is a classic from many peoples childhood.

I have been meaning to read this book for a while. It was really good, but even though it looks like a quick read, the 139 pages are very thought provoking. I have mixed feelings about the ending though.

I read this for novel studies at school. I neither of the books were things I wanted to try, but I tried it anyways. It turned out to be amazing, although the ending was... unexpected. I was expecting something more happy. But over all this is definitely worth your time. The moral? The grass isn't always greener on the other side, because when you get closer, you'll see the weeds.

I read this a few years ago because my school librarian recommended it to me. I was very hesitant at first since I wasn't particularly into the genre, but I loved it at the end. It's a beautiful story, and sort of bittersweet. I think I liked it more because the ending was a bit unexpected. This book will always have a place in my heart.

This book is about a magical water spring where the water allows you to live forever. The Tuck family all takes a drink of the water unknowing that it made them be invincible. This whole story is about their life, and they are not enjoying it. This book teaches you a lesson that living forever isn't great. Read this book for a great story.

I really liked this book. The movie ways well done but they changed a few things. I would sudgest you read the book first then watch the movie. Even thought they both end the same I think how the movie ends is better.

So, I just read this book again to quote it in an essay I am writing and I found two quotations that I liked. 'Winnie thought about this peril to the frogs, and sighed. "It'd be nice," she said, "if nothing ever had to die." "Well, now, I don't know," said Miles. If you think on it, you come to see there'd be so many creatures, including people, we'd all be squeezed in right up next to each other before long." I might put this quotation in my piece. This one is just humorous though, "How old are you anyway?" she asked, squinting at him. There was a pause. At last he said, "Why do you want to know?" "I just wondered," said Winnie. "All right. I'm one hundred and four years old," he told her solemnly. "No, I mean really," she persisted. "Well then," he said, "if you must know, I'm seventeen." "Seventeen?" "That's right." "Oh," said Winnie hopelessly. "Seventeen. That's old." "You have no idea," he agreed with a nod.

The ownership of land is an odd thing when you come to think of it. How deep, after all, can it go? If a person owns a piece of land, does he own it all the way down, in ever narrowing dimensions, till it meets all other pieces at the center of the earth? Or does ownership consist only of a thin crust under which the friendly worms have never heard of trespassing?

The road that led to Treegap had been trod out long before by a herd of cows who were, to say the least, relaxed. It wandered along in curves and easy angles, swayed off and up in a pleasant tangent to the top of a small hill, ambled down again between fringes of bee-hung clover, and then cut sideways across a meadow. Here its edges blurred. It widened and seemed to pause, suggesting tranquil bovine picnics: slow chewing and thoughtful contemplation of the infinite. And then it went on again and came at last to the wood. But on reaching the shadows of the first trees, it veered sharply, swung out in a wide arc, and passed around.
