Girl Who Leapt Through Time
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Makoto Konno is having one of those days. After getting up late for school she's hit with a pop quiz. She started a grease fire during her cooking class. Then she gets knocked down by some guys while they wrestle. How much worse can this day get? While doing an errand, Makoto loses the brakes on her bike and barrels headlong down the street toward a train crossing. This would have been the capper for a horrible day, but for some reason something strange has happened. Time has suddenly stopped and moved her backward.
With her newly discovered ability to literally leap backwards in time, Makoto finds that tests become a piece of cake, embarrassing situations are corrected and she can have her favorite food anytime she wants. Unfortunately, her care-free time traveling has adverse effects on the people she cares for.
With every time leap Makoto somehow alters the fate of those around her. This wasn't supposed to happen! As she races back in time to fix everything, she discovers that her abilities are not limitless. But with every successful jump she will find herself one step closer to uncovering a most wonderful secret.

the story follows a girl names makoto who likes spending time with her two best friends, kosuke, a serious, reserved sort or guy, and chiaki, a fun-loving joker. though the three of them have not always been best friends, we can see that they are very close and enjoy spending a lot of time together. the point at which the story takes a more sci-fi approach is on the day makoto is late for school. she is more often than not late, but on this specific day as she is hurdling down a hill, a train happens to be passing by at the bottom of said hill and she is going to fast to stop. she tries to slow down, but ends up hitting the barrier between the pedestrians and the train tracks and sends herself flying in the way of the train. just before she is squashed and our story is ended however, time stops and she finds herself transported back in time, and is safe from the squishing. she has some fun with this, though doesn't yet know the significance. around this time she discovers that one of her friends is developing feelings for her, and because she doesn't wish to change their relationship yet, uses the 'time machine' to avoid his asking her out. at the end she is forced to choose between love and friendship, but not in the way you'd think.Read more ›
Imagine my glee when I got a product email from amazon listing some new releases and this was included. Then double that glee when I saw there was a limited edition.
This was a wonderful story. With repercussions for actions and teaching the lesson that things happen a way for a reason. It does have an ending that leaves me wanting a little but yet also lets my imagination run wild with the possibilities.
