Winnie sure knows how to pick 'em. Where other ten-year-old girls have besties over for sleepovers, Winnie traipses around the nearby woods and befriends an entire family of seriously old people—so old they're immortal. The other problem? The Tucks won't stick around very long. That means that in Tuck Everlasting, Winnie needs to rely on herself and be her own best friend.
After her adventure with the Tucks, Winnie is still on her own—totally friendless.
If Jesse were a true friend, he wouldn't have offered Winnie water from the spring.
