The Loop

Age Range
Release Date
December 31, 1969
Ben and Maggie have met, fallen in love, and died together countless times. Over the course of two pivotal days—both the best and worst of their lives—they struggle again and again to resist the pull of fate and the force of time itself. With each failure, they return to the beginning of their end, a wild road trip that brings them to the scene of their own murders and into the hands of the man destined to kill them.

As time circles back on itself, events become more deeply ingrained, more inescapable for the two kids trapped inside the loop. The closer they come to breaking out, the tighter fate’s clutches seem to grip them. They devise a desperate plan to break free and survive the days ahead, but what if Ben and Maggie’s only shot at not dying is surviving apart?

A fast and exciting read, Loop was not at all what I expected. Ben and Maggie are caught in a Time Loop - they are doomed to relive the same two days over and over. The worst part? They die at the end of the second day. They do everything they can to fight Time and change their Fate, but what can two teens do against the whole universe?
Loop was exciting, adventurous, and fun. The characters are very relateable; their emotions and dialogue are well-written and believable. The plot is fast-paced, but doesn't leave the reader behind and confused. The lack of apocalyptic disasters and corrupt governments is refreshing, as is the stand-alone nature of the book. I definitely recommend it for middle grade and high school readers
