I removed a star upon re-reading this book, which I remembered with some fondness from my youth. I can see why it engaged my imagination at that time, but I didn't find it as compelling as an adult. The theme of the curse of eternal youth comes through loud and clear, but the characters all make fairly ridiculous decisions. And it seems the Tucks might have found a way to do a little more with this immortality then run away and hide from suspicious neighbors.
