The story of Tabitha is one of second chances and 'what if', it's one of emotional roller-coaster from the start.

I can't think of anything that wouldn't spoil the story for prospective readers, all I have left to is that you'll inevitably fall in love with the protaganist of this series and some of the characters she interacts with.

Here is a prime example of how to write characters that feel and act like human beings, with all that it entails.

Truly, honestly, from the bottom of my heart, I say to you.

This story is a treasure. 

The depth, the character, the sheer emotion and comprehension engraved into every chapter is awe inspiring.

There is no hero. There is only Tabitha.

And she is trying her best.

I'm not good at reviewing but I think the fact that, as of right now, all the other reviews are positive with a 5 star rating should tell you enough. Read it. Really, it doesn't have many chapters yet but even just the few that are up are worth your time.

Definitely worth more of your time than my review at least, so go read it!

This story is excellent. It is a typical concept with a twist done well. It makes you think how hard it would be to do what this MC wants to do.

If you could go back to when you were younger what would you change?

How much do you relaly remember about your high school friends or classmates? 

How useful is your knowledge of 'the future' really? And who would listen to you if you tried to later it?

This is the story I look for eagerly on RRL right now. I thoroughly enjoy all the others, but this one stands out, it is different, well written and easy to picture in my mind as I read it. The author knows to write characters that have flaws, have positives and negatives, and are clearly shown to be influenced by society and the times they live in. 

This is one of the few stories on this site that makes me actaully think about it when I'm not reading it.

There are already lots of reviews done so will try to make a poem:

Walking in circles,
living a failure,
she steps in the MRI,
she listens to a partiture.

Her past written by forty,
with pencil or keys,
since she can repeat it,
Forty will write it again.

So she travels away,
homecoming to school, 
She repeats those very years, 
That she was a fool. 

Struggle and trouble, 
Friendship snuggles,
Betraying experiences, 
A memory of thirteens. 

Nothing but flaws,
A character's gold, 
Call it a bracelet,
But it won't be sold.

Designs and ideas,
A jet show in wait, 
of Ashlee in dire, 
Tabitha's awake. 

And you dear reader, 
The one undecided, 
Push the start trigger, 
Or you'll regret being meager. 

Since a raccoon doesn't rhyme, 
it will return to its hoard, 
In a lil' bit of time, 
It has hidden inside cardboard. 

(It's writing with rhyming ruining tempo on purpose. To represent something too.)

A do-over story; so many try, so many fail.

 

This one is the story of a trailer trash elderly woman getting a second chance, clawing her way out of her old life by the skin of he teeth. the struggle is real; more than any other dragon-slaying quest.

 

Give it a try - I did so on a whim, and I regret scoffing at the title when I first saw it on the latest releases page a month ago.

The story is up to seven chapters as I write this. I've devoured them all in one night after a recommendtion in Reddit /r/rational and have added the RSS feed to my alerts. My rating of only 4.5/5 has to do with my hopes for where the story will go and grow as it proceeds. The author stated how they felt that this is no Wandering Inn or MoL. That's true, but in some ways the author has a harder job with this story. It is a slice of life, taking place in our real world of 1998 with no magic or fantasy or super-science to make the story larger than life. I like how the story avoids the trope of the time travelling protagonist who brings all the knowledge of future science and technology and stocks to invest in and bets to place. To the reviewers who had mentioned that anyone would have known to invest in Apple - This is a thirteen year old girl with no money and who never had money in her previous life. In another ten or fifteen years, will she know which of the companies whose name she remembers as successful are about to rise just as she finally has the ability to invest in them? I think the story does an amazing job of portraying which future knowledge she can actually use, to what degree it doesn't help her, and the difficulty that a socially awkward 60 year old woman has trying to drop in to the life of a 13 year old girl who will clearly not even be the 13 year old girl that she remembers being.

 

I am looking forward to see where this story goes.

 So I binged this book in two days and wow, where to begin !

I'm very frustrated and feel kind of empty after finishing it, which proves how much I enjoyed it !

This book is the first one I've read on royalroad and I'm not very familiar with internet books,  you could consider me an old fashioned reader. Someone recomended Re:TT to me and I gave it a try, and boy I'm not disappointed! 

I found it so well written, so addictive, the characters were so REAL, and the pace of the story was just perfect. I never felt bored reading it which is usually the case at some point in every book I read. I love how the story slowly develops but at the same time stays real without elements forced into the scenario to make it go to some points. It's very natural. I would gladly buy this book if it ever comes out in paper !

I wish you all the best, and I'm waiting impatiently for the next update !

Love it. This story is fantastic and so are the charcters. Every moment feels real and is a total page turner. Every charcter plays their role in the story and help move it along. The different charcter perspectives the story shifts to gives a breath of insight into them. My favorite moments in the story is when charactors gain a understanding of tabitha. When this happens the dynamic between tabitha and whomever really opens up. Best example I have describing it is food wars soma when people eat the various dishes soma makes and there is a flavorsplosion in their mouth except its storysplosion in your brain. And you the reader can't get enough of it. But that just my honest opinion. 

This is a redo story about life grabbing the MC by the throat and throwing her into ordeals one after another. Tabitha is a underdog character, flawed, and she wants for a better life for herself. It's these details that makes her so compeling that you can't help but cheer for her and see where her story goes. 

Please read it.
