    " I had high expectations, as this is the author of my favorite YA book "Tangerine". I enjoyed the first 2/3, it was zany and cool. The rest seemed to spiral out of control. "

    " I love Tangerine, so I was expecting to love this. Story Time is about a school that has kids take standardized tests all day, every day, to improve their scores. The government thinks the school is AMAZING from the test scores, but we know better. Bloor's Tangerine was a terrific, funny satire on environmental issues and from this book jacket, I was expecting a similar satire on today's standardized testing. But Bloor added this whole demon thing to the plot that just didn't work. It was a devil, or someone traveling in time through a demon, or just a haunting- I couldn't keep it straight, and by the end I was just glad the book was over. Darn! "

    " Strange story about a strange school with unrealistic demands on the students, who persevere anyway. "

    " Having a gifted child myself, I was intrigued by the premise. This story was not at all how I expected it to be, but it was still entertaining. The antagonists were a bit over the top, but it was still a fun read. "
