This girl meets this boy. He looks like he’s 17 years old, but really, he’s over 100. He and his family are immortal, but it’s a big secret. The family has to be really careful about when they go out into town so that no one sees them. They don’t age, obviously, and people would start to notice after a while, so they have to lay low.
Well, this girl falls in love with the boy. She has a choice to make. She can become immortal like him and spend the rest of her life with him (and yet leave her family forever)… OR she can live out her life as normal, but never see the boy again.
If she decides to stay with the boy, it’s Twilight.
If she decides to live her life normally, it’s Tuck Everlasting.
Now, I can’t be the only person in the world that noticed this, but I figured I’d point it out anyway, because I was reading Tuck Everlasting yesterday and couldn’t help but notice the similarities. *shrug*
