Did Winnie like being with her kidnappers in Tuck Everlasting?  

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Winnie enjoys being with her kidnappers once she gets over the shock of being kidnapped.

When Winnie sees Jesse in the woods, drinking from the immortal spring, he knows that he can’t just leave her there. There is too much risk that she will drink from the spring, because she has no idea what it does. The best thing they can think of is to kidnap her and take her home, so that is just what Jesse, Miles, and Mae Tuck do.

Winnie does not feel that the Tucks are average kidnappers.  Rather than frightening her, her kidnappers seem “just as alarmed” as she is.
