RE: Trailer Trash
- Traumatising content
In the year 2045, an MRI mishap transmits Tabitha Moore's mind back into her body in the past. Now it's 1998, she's thirteen years old, and she has to confront her long, miserable lifetime of failures—and once again being trailer trash—all over again.
...Or, does she?

Now this was refreshing. A realistic novel with time-travel elements. The resolve of Tabitha to change, her plans, problems, suffering, new friends. The turmoil she goes throught.
A lot of people want to have a second chance in life, to change something from their past, to do better or any other reason, but the reality of it could be cruel. I reallly liked how it is shown that, even if you go back to the past, things won't be as easy as most people assume them to be.
We follow our MC, Tabitha, as she goes back to the past from 2045 to 1998. That travel comes from nowhere and she doesn't know what to make out of it. For starters, she tries to change her life for the better. The problems she gets, the suffering and the hopes she carries, all come to you like a wave of beautifully made story with depth to it, that shows you that life isn't ever easy.
Flows smoothly enough, as the author shows us a realistic novel in its full glory. It's not elaborate, nor is it a unique style, but it's enough for what its intented.
I saw a few typos, but that's normal for most of the novels, except if you don't have dedicated editors. As a whole, the grammar is on a good enough level.
With a lot of depth, even for the side characters in the story, It can be seen that the author had worked a lot on them and their interactins, perspectives, thoughts and so on. I have no complains here.
A realistic novel, showing the good and bad in our community as wel as the struggle for a second chance. It's definetely worth reading and a good distraction from the most novels on this site. Don't get me wrong, I like dunggeons, swords, magic and so on, but sometimes we just need a change of genre, something different to read and if you feel like that, then you should check this story!
Incredible story! You made me stop procrastinating and finally create an account just to rate this story.
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,
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,
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.)
Incrível, é apenas essa palavra que tenho para essa história.
As a person who spends 24/7 reading novels on the Internet, after reading for over 4 years, I have a very sophisticated taste when it comes to reading, and I can't stand those dumb MCs, nicknames and owners of reason anymore. This is a story about life, developed in a very intelligent way, always making clear the feelings of the MC, and also giving a clear view of the life and trauma of a person who over decades of bullying, without that bullshit of overcame everything after reincarnate, you can really feel a connection with the characters in this story, whether they are main or supporting, the most interesting thing is that you cannot predict many things, at least I am always surprised, believe me after reading for so many years and watching so many movies, I can kind of draw the line of development of a story, but this one is different, I honestly can't predict and I don't even want to predict something, I just want to enjoy this wonderful story, in fact I was reading very slowly to be able to live every moment, in short, the story has great characters, great development, a very good and real world construction, the author has a very good writing (I am a reader of mtl, for me the author is almost a God of grammar, I thank you with tears in my eyes), the author knows very well how to control the pace of the story, I think the only thing I can complain about is that it has no post stability, but I will still follow this story firmly and firmly.
First of all, I just wanna say that I really love the concept. I’ve read up to chapter 4 so far, and clearly there’s been a lot of effort put in. However, I had to stop after 4 chapters.
Before I get to my main crticism, one other thing that threw me off was the dialogue and character interactions. Some come off kind of stilted. But really, it’s not a big deal and I wasn’t that bothered (I feel like the author probably obsessed over it a long time until she couldn’t tell what feels natural anymore, I’ve been there).
What really turned me off was the main character being so... like, teenager-like. Idk, like she’s standoffish for no reason, unrealistic of her actual senior age. It almost feels like she’s the typical angsty teen who thinks she knows more than anyone else. The only reason I’m turned off by it is that I feel like an actual elder who has experienced life would be wise and laid back enough to smartly plan things out without being so... like YA novel teen protagonist-ish. And then I read this:
“As an English Major, I could write a dissertation expounding and elaborating on any one of these terms. As a former aspiring author, I have personally worried each of those ideas down to the bone to comprehend every last nuance of profundity from the marrow therein!“
And then just cringed. I can’t read anymore, I’m sorry. The concept overall is super enticing though.
It's incredibly refreshing to have a story not set in a video game. I still call it fantasy because I at least have though many times about how I might do things differently if a had the chance.
I keep coming back to this one. It's not a suspenseful page turner you can't out down, but every time I do I eventually think, "huh, I wonder if Tabby ever made it" and read the next chapter.
I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because I thought her night-and-day transformation over the summer was a bit unrealistic, even with a lifetime of experience to motivate her, and I really want this story to be realistic (save the whole time travel thing, of course). If Tabby breezes through life the second time, I'm afraid that will just amplify my regrets whenever I think "if only I had just...". I want her to find that fate and chance and such have their way despite her foresight to remind me that I need not be perfect and to instead roll with the punches. But perhaps I just haven't read far enough.
I read books for a living, and I got to say, wow. This is fantastically written, well paced, and presents a human, believable face to a protagonist in a situation we all wish we could be in.
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.
I thought of quickly skimming through the first few chapters. Here I am, on the last page of the story, and it is morning outside.
We are following Tabitha Moore, a woman well past her prime. An incident occurs that sends her mind back in her own body. Back to her childhood that she hated so much. Back into her accursed fat body. And back to her family, school and many other troublesome and painful things.
Is this a story of wish-fulfilling 'I'll do everything right and save the world' type? It's not an opposite type where everything goes wrong in many more ways, screwing the protagonist's life.
It's a realistic story of a woman reverting back into the girl and struggling with her life once more. And the struggle is not of the kind you'd expect, not 'oh I don't want to do it,' or 'another force shows and screws all the plans,' no.
But I suggest you read it yourself to find out.
The quality is way beyond RR. It belongs to a published book of an experienced author. Consistency, characters, plot, everything is beyond expectations. I'm surprised to find such a mature read here.
Hope, you'll be surprised, too.
PS: It actually made me do workouts again.
A story of inprovment, ability, and hope. This story is very-very good, please take your time to read it, not much matches its spicific nich.
A girl who goes back and changes it all to who she wants to be, thats really all there is to it--and yet it is almost impossibly good . . . perhaps not 'Good Student or 'Mother of Learning' good, but still nigh to impecible.
P.S. I want more please.
P.P.S. 5 in 'over all' for the aforementioned reasons / 4 for style: the writing flows well but is not identifiably the authors / 3 for story: it's a very basic premise in honesty / 5 for grammar: personally I have noted no errors / 4.5 for characters: believable characters but without the spark to make them thier own entities, to make them come alive. Again, over all an incredible story.
