A LOOP IN TIME took me a long time to read. It is a challenge, but one that satisfies when you finish.

It is a retelling of the Egyptian myth of Osiris. Errica Lugwig is a young girl growing up in New York City. Her father died in the tunnel wars. Her mother is a librarian. They have some unusual items in their apartment.

When Errica was born was given a blanket named Spike, which has bobbleheads of scientists who are her friends -- and which also flies. Her mother has a wastebasket which never gets full. I certainly would love that!

Errica, though, has a pretty lonely existence with her mother working long hours. She decides that time is not linear but is cyclical, and thinks that possibly her father is alive. The remainder of the story is Errica's search for her father, dealing with a Paris Hilton-type girl whose father fought with her own, and ultimately finding out that she is not an Earth being but a Ringold.

I strongly recommend this story to a special niche of young adults. The reader should be science minded, have some knowledge of Egyptian mythology, and like a good story.
