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?

The review titel says it all. The only downside is the time it takes the author to write the next chapter but good writing takes time I guess.
The character is established with flaws and tasks to accomplish which aren't impossible to overcome but make for a good enough of a goal to keep the MC goal-oriented and give a sense of progression. Character interactions are well expressed and somewhat realistic. LitRPG elements like stat sheets etc. are not included and I'm glad for it. Overall a good find and a great read, highly recommend.
loved the story.
keep it up Author san.
Got reccomended here from Topwebfiction, and though I'd give it a try; something different from what i usually read. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the work and the character interactions. Some of the dialogue feels a bit stilted, but I think that I can safely chalk that up to the author still trying to get a handle on the individual characters. There are clearly some direction that they are trying to go with this, so as the series progress, I reserve the right to come back and upgrade this to a 5 star review
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.
This is a fantastic story, and a very uplifting one as well. I want to hold on this one and share it with next generation so they can gain valuable insight on the decisions we make and how it can affect us decades later. Please keep writing!
Triumph is seemingly one emotion people craved. Maybe I projected myself too much; but reading Tabitha Moore (the main character of this story) attained the first of her many goal, unfailingly filled me with warm fuzzy feeling. Written in realistic style, through realistic means, this fiction arguably deserve the high rating it has here in Royal Road.
But I'd like to say high rating in RR doesn't tell much in regard to its ability to give you a pleasurable reading experience.
In this fiction, for instance, you will find something that is quite unbelievable you have to stop reading a few moments just to chalk it up as fiction being fiction. First, there's a thing called Kubler-Ross model, or what I called stages of grief before I consult wikipedia. When faced with something greatly unagreeable, people go into denial, angered, try find some sort of hold, depressed, all before accepting things as what life has dealt you with. Tabitha Moore seemingly ignore these stages. She shows great anger and denial when she realized she's sent back to her past, imagining prospect of reliving the least favorite phase of her life. But moments later, she's miraculously alright with it. I don't believe she ever felt sadness before she eventually decided to move on.
On that chapter, I mumbled, "Huh?" OK, maybe author dislike to dwell on it. Or, maybe the author want her to be uber resilient character who bounce back readily without any help of outside influence. But I say that's unbelievable. I never met someone not having lingering feeling of hurt days after got shocked that fiercely. That's why Tabitha Moore, from then on demoted from character that has potential to be lived in, into a figment of imagination I am willing to indulge.
There's also questionable motive that encourage her to keep going (who's Julie? Why Tabitha was so hurt when she suicide?) which lead to unawareness of causality (if Julie is Tabitha's yet to be born sister, why she think she would be born at all, with her acting differently toward her mother?). I also have problem that her grandmother character is ever so kind. Stated before Tabitha's interaction with her, the two has never been close. Tabitha reservation from asking her aid is quite nice to read, but their following interaction that is devoid of distance is not satisfactory. I'd like to see the grandmother treat Tabitha with caution before rendering aid (she's a mid-schooler that may not know what she need). Or Tabitha visibly relieved that her grandmother decided to go along with her. Author did not need to go into detail with it, some readers do not like to attend a discourse on fictional character's inner turmoil. Author only need to show that those emotion exist during such interaction; so that reader can see why the story goes the way it goes.
I am aware that it's not the author did not attempt to explore facets of the story I expanded. In fact, in many places the author did it really well (I'm very pleased with how Tabitha's father and her many rapscallious cousins turned out. I'm also pleased that there are multiple level of language articulation between characters; Tabitha's English is a treat, most of the time) It's just that I lack the eloquence to say that what he did is not enough in some other part.
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!
Overall I've come to find your story to be quite orginal with the aspects of how the reincarnation is done. This and also the fact you are leaving out such things as super powers or the supernatural outside of the situation that started this story. The only problem I can see would be with some of the side characters not being as fleshed out as they coud potentially be. But this is more than likely due to the difficulty that comes from trying to express how it feels to live in such a poor standard of living and how it can affect the people around. But at the same time it shows it quite accuratelly, because life is as difficult as your starting point makes it. Here is a girl who had one of the worst possible starting points imaginable and yet look how far she's come. This comes around because of the life she has already lived, a life of regret and pain, a life she had accepted. Yet, when it comes time for her to relive this life she refuses, understanding that in truth she has not accepted this pain and want to ensure that she and the people around her don't have to go through this pain again. This is what I've gotten out of your 7 chapter you have written, I find your motivation and your efforts to write this have not been in vain. i truely believe that this story could go somewhere and I hope that you keep writing this, I do not know your situation with your life or how everything is going for you. But just remember that your readers are there for you.
