Galley: Yes
Top 25: Yes
Convince us to read the book: The characters in the book were one of the best parts of the book. The plot was good but kind of confusing. The only thing I did not like was a little bit of the dialogue. Maggie, one of the main characters, swore. I don't have a problem with that usually, but she only swore with one word over and over so that was kind of annoying.
Memorable or Forgettable: Everything is easy to remember - it has a fast paced plot and good detail.
Cover: Yes the cover tempted me. Yes the cover reflects the contents of the book - especially the broken clock.
Age Range: 12 through 13
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Annotation: Two kids. One killer. And the last 3 days of their life on repeat. The Loop is about Ben and Maggie, two kids that are running from their death only to die again. Follow them as they race against time trying to change their fate.
