I love it!  The consept is so interesting and the plot is unpredictable at times.  I love how deep and moving the characters are too.  The author really puts thought and time into each chapter.  I just wish I had more.  

 

All in all, great find and great novel.  Please keep going!

Solid prose and style with few errors. I really didnt know what to expect with the name or the premise. 

The meat and bones of this novel start with Tabs getting a chance at doing her life over. Unprepared for the opportunity, she sets relatable goals and establishes their importance every step of the way. Not armed with f22 schematics or the key to clean energy, she uses her experience to improve her life, influence the lives of her community, and lift up the fates of her family. The time period and references are solid and the story reads like any number of the award winning coming of age classics that are so vital to our education. It wouldn't surprise me if the book itself ends up being a school library favorite. 

As an author myself, reading this has been very helpful in honing my own thoughts on character depth and integrity. 

Tldr? Outstanding. 

Cheers

This is a shorter review, but the short of it is this is a great story. I like the characters, and it's a very engaging plot so far. A couple strange things that I don't totally get, like what her parents do and why she can't remember what year 9/11 happened, but overall I like it a lot.

However, it still is in the early phase where the character is experiencing rapid growth. Those are enjoyable the majority of the time no matter what, so it remains to be seen if this one can keep the momentum going.

Edit: It has. Good work.

This is a hell of a good story having good characters a believable world except the time-travel and it's hilarious at some points making it a fantastic read. But as it is common with extremely good storys the release speed is slow and I can definetly understand why this is at the top-list.

Great start with a few flaws

The line between Peggy Sue and Mary Sue is very often thin and ambiguous, and in this case the main character is leaning more and more towards Mary Sue.

It is excused in several ways, of course; bring an original story rather than a fan fiction of some sort means treading into less traveled territory - less familiar to the reader, much more space to maneuver in terms of story breadth. The very fact, too, that this is a 60-year-old in a young teenage body inherently means that she's going to be walking circles around her peers intellectually, and can be played off if written well.

Is it pulled off? Mostly. The story is still young and I fully expect to see considerable expansion on the settling and characters, both primary and the broader cast, given the quality of the story at large. Family and character interactions are largely very good thus far, tackling a variety of interesting conflicts and dynamics without minimizing or glossing things over too much.

My main criticism comes in how the training montage was executed. Tabby starts fat, has a minor breakdown, and then resolves to fix this - all good, lots of great character establishment and the seeds of development started. Then BAM - montage ends  theand she's gone from the gross longer to the hottest girl in school and everyone is obsessing over her. It's jarring, bends suspension of disbelief harder than anything else in the story, and reeks of wish fulfillment/power fantasy. Which isn't inherently bad or wrong - but it feels very it of place with an otherwise very good story.

I've rated characters a 3/5. This is half due to the aforementioned issues and the rest due to a limited and as of yet underdeveloped character cast. I have complete confidence this will be rectified as the story continues; many seeds of character development and conflict have been planted and I look forward to seeing them grow.

  I have never liked drama or romance or even contemporary writing, until I picked this story up. It is so good that I don’t feel like I can do it justice in this review, so just yes.

extremely good so far. Even the flawless grammar and vocabulary choices contribute to my sadly very addictive reading enjoyment

Contemporary made not boring.

I normaly never read Contemporary because it usually sounds bland and uninteresting. But this novel made me curious, and a of chapter 6 I can say it's defenitly not a waste of your time to start reading it. Well written, characters feels realist even if a little cliché (real life is pretty cliché anyway) and MC is relatable. Absolutely have a go if you're still browsing the reviews.

RE: I want to know about the Goblin!

Absolutely amazing start. Keep up the good work! The MC feels very real, with clear problems and trials she is dealing with. Only thing though is for someone that lacked the motivation and self control in one life to fix their life and was forced to under threat of death... the personality shift is bit much. Not a big deal, and honestly is fine. Just hoping these abrupt character changes dont happen too often in the story. Keep up the excellent work.

Re story about overcoming adolescence

I like it. I like the female lead, the choices she's making, and the relationships. I'm looking forward to more!
