Revived- Cat Patrick
Author: Cat Patrick
Rating: 4 of out 5
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 Appleby has died five times in fifteen years. The first was when she was a little girl and a school bus drove off the road into a lake. Daisy has since changed last names and locations. Everytime she dies she is forced to move. The drug that keeps bringing her back is called Revived which has been made by the government that is able to bring people back to life if they have died. Daisy and a group of other teenagers who all died for the first time on the bus are part of this top secret government agency.
This is a book that can easily be read one in one sitting if you have time time. The pages fly by without notice. While reading I was completely absorbed into the story and would be suprised when I looked up and realized I had read 100 pages.
Daisy starts at another new school and meets Audrey who has a hunk of a brother named Matt. They soon all become close friends. When Daisy finds out that one of her new friends is ill with an incurrable illness she starts to rethink everything she has taken for granted and starts to think about the revied program in a new way. This book read like a contemporary with a scientific twist.
There was some romance, which was a little to insta love for my liking but the cheese level is not too bad. Daisy has friends outside of Audrey and Matt. Her friend Megan plays a large role in the story even after Daisy finds a love interest.
This book was fabolous. The parts I did not like quickly corrected themselves and I enjoyed this book from the first to the last page. I loved Patrick`s writing style and I want to read her previous novels.
