Revived Review

336 pages

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.

I have to say this really wasn't the best book I've read lately. Honestly it was pretty sad and depressing to me. Daisy is a character that doesn't bring much to the table when it comes to being an interesting character. She likes to stay below the radar, which is fine, but she also seems to have a lot of insecurities which are annoying. This book mostly focuses on Daisy and Matt's relationship and the death of someone close to Daisy. It was really hard for me to get through this novel because I felt like it was just sucking the joy out of my life. I liked the idea behind the novel and the drug Revive, but I wish more focus and action had been put on that than the whole death thing. I can't recommend it since this book just wasn't for me but other people might enjoy it.
