Convince us to read the book: One thing I liked most about this book is that you get hooked very fast. There is no beating around the bush -- you get straight to the beginning of the plot. I also thought the plot was very strong and different. Also, I am not a fan of sci-fi, but I loved this book.
Memorable or Forgettable: I liked how you were on the same page as Ben, because he didn't know/remember anything about the loop.
Cover: I liked the clock and the cover; it drew me in.

Annotation: The Loop is about a boy named Ben and a girl named Maggie. They are stuck on a loop -- a loop is like a rock in time -- and a certain event keeps repeating itself. Maggie remembers all the previous loops, but Ben doesn't. Slowly, as Ben starts to remember, he decides that the best option would be to try to change up the loop in any way possible. So he and Maggie are on a mission to change fate itself.
