In chapter 1 of Tuck, Everlasting Winne was outside her house talking to a toad who was trapped inside the house and can't escape and neither couldn't Winne and she wanted to escape but she knew she needed her mom.
One day Winne decided to go into the woods and saw a young adult who was drinking from the spring and then they chated but when Winne try to drink from the spring she got kidnaped and got knocked out when she woke up she realized she was on a horse and then remembred how useless she is without her mother.
When the Tuck family and Winne got used to each other Miles and her was fishing for breakfast Miles caught a rainbow colored fish with marble eyes and suddenly Winne began to shed tears and demanded Miles to put int back into the water asking if its ok.
So the man in the yellow suit came told a story about a family how can live forever and then the man in the yellow suit takes out a slip that says he now owns the woods and says going to sell the water from the spring and make Winne drink it to be a freak so he takes Winne and runs but Mae takes Tuck's shotgun and hit him on the head.
WInne was at home remembering Mae and how she killed the man in the yellow suit and started imagining her behind bars and how she can't die and that they will figure that out when they try to hang her.
After they escape they leave each other for 2 years and goes back to Tree Gap she shes grave with Winne's name and then Tuck and Mae start crying and said it will be ok.
