My son is 8th grade. Probably h.s reading level. Reads some higher level books (MazeRunner) but still reads Hardy Boys books. Would he enjoy Tuck Everlasting?
Asked by a Parent on September 7th, 2016
I have loved sharing it with my 6th graders. I love using it for the descriptive language and theme. It brings out incredible discussion in my students because they are so intrigued by the idea of a family that will live forever. If your son is reading HS level books, this might not be as challenging for him, but it is an amazing book that I LOVE to share with my students.
