Tuck Everlasting

"His tall body moved continuously; a foot tapped, a shoulder twitched. And it moved in angles, rather jerkily. But at the same time he has a kind of grae, like a well-handled marrionette. Indeed, he seemed almost to hang suspended there in the twilight." (page 18, on "The Man in the Yellow Suit")

-"The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning." (pg. 3)-"The sky was a ragged blaze of red and pink and orange, and its double trembled on the surface of the pond like color spilled from a paintbox." (pg. 60)-"If people knowed about the spring down there in Treegap, they'd all come running like pigs to slops." (pg. 64)-"..it was as if they had slipped in under a giant colander." (pg. 48)
