    Treegap is the village where Tuck Everlasting takes place. It has a wood, a road, a cottage, a jailhouse and gallows. The road that goes through Treegap is long and windy. The author uses personification to describe how it twists and turns. The road wasn’t really much of a road, it is more like a rock path, but in the epilogue of the book it gets covered in tarmac. The cottage has a touch-me-not appearance that makes it look very proud of itself. It was a square house with perfectly cut grass…

    interested in the mysterious aspects of life, so when I heard that tonight the forest would consist of such an evil, I had to scope it out. Eek!
