As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life.
A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency’s true goals, she realizes she’s at the center of something much larger—and more sinister—than she ever imagined.
Daisy was five-years-old when she died in a bus-crash in Iowa. She’s been revived five times by now and the last time it barely worked. Each revival means a new home, life, and last name. On her first day at, Omaha Victory High School , Daisy West meets bright and pretty Audrey and her brother, Matt, her first real friends. Promising herself not to die again, Daisy’s friendship with Audrey strengthens, and before long, Daisy can sense something’s wrong. Daisy may not be the only one with a secret.
The book was terrific from the captivating first page. I really like how Cat Patrick started the story. I loved Audrey so I didn’t really like what happened to her in the end, it was one of the rare moments when I nearly cracked a tear. The book is really emotional. Though I really enjoyed it, I wish the author had given more description on some of the characters. Mason was probably my favorite along side Audrey. I felt it ended too soon, especially since this is a standalone.
I was really excited to pick up Revived when first set my eyes on the cover. Luckily for me, the inside was just as good – maybe even better. If you’re looking for a beautiful read, that will leave your emotions jumbled, Revive is the perfect book for you.
