Ur Tuck Everlasting av Natalie Babbitt (1932-2016)

"'How old are you, anyway?' she asked, squinting at him.
  There was a pause. At last he said, 'Why do you want to know?'
  'I just wondered,' said Winnie.
  'All right. I'm one hundred and four years old,' he told her solemnly.
  'No, I mean really,' she persisted.
  'Well then.' he said, 'if you must know, I'm seventeen.'
  'That's right.'
  'Oh,' said Winnie hopelessly. 'Seventeen. That's old.'
  'You have no idea,' he agreed with a nod."
