Tuck Everlasting:
Winnie Foster is a ten-year-old girl who yearns to discover what’s outside the fence of her home. Exploring her family’s small forest one day, she comes across Jesse Tuck and the fresh-water spring that, after he and his family drank from it, turned them immortal. The Tucks have kept their secret from the outside world for the past eighty years by hiding the spring and living in seclusion. Winnie is the first person outside the family to hear their story. Fearful of the world discovering their secret, the Tucks kidnap Winnie and bring her to their home. Winnie grows fond of the Tuck family, particularly the youngest son, Jesse, as they tell her about their life never experiencing pain or getting older. At the same time, a mysterious man in a yellow suit follows the Tucks and learns their secret. Hoping to use the magical spring for his own personal gain, the man seeks to gain ownership of the Fosters’ forest and put the Tucks in jail for Winnie’s kidnapping.

Number the Stars:
The story centers on 10-year-old Annemarie Johansen, who lives with her mother, father, and sister Kirsti in Copenhagen in 1943. Annemarie becomes a part of the events related to the rescue of the Danish Jews, when thousands of Jews were to reach neutral ground in Sweden to avoid being relocated to concentration camps. She risks her life to help her best friend, Ellen Rosen, by pretending that Ellen is Annemarie's late older sister, Lise, who was killed earlier in the war by the Nazi army because of her work with the Danish Resistance. However, her former fiancé, Peter, continues to help them.
