Welcome to our special election edition of Novel Ideas. Today’s episode features Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt, a book that has absolutely nothing to do with elections. This is a slightly shorter than average episode, as the book itself is rather short itself. But for such a short book, there is a surprising depth to it. In the podcast we talk about the character traits of twelve year olds, the effects of August, and the ethics of kidnapping. We also talk about immortality. Like, a lot. So who wants to live forever? No one and everyone.
The music bump is “Who Wants to Live Forever” by the immortal (not literally) Queen.
