Book Review: Revived

I'm still trying to catch up with my book reviews. This one is from last November, and I have read over 20 books since then. I will NOT be reviewing all of them because I would never catch up. I am going to pick the ones that stood out to me instead. Today's review is about Revived by Cat Patrick.

Revived is one of those books that is going to stay with me for a long time. Was it the best book I've ever read? No. Was it the most well written book? No. That said, the concept is phenomenal, and I couldn't put it down. This is one of those book that I just DEVOURED. 

Goodreads has a nice summary of Revived, and it says:

It started with a bus crash.
Daisy Appleby was a little girl when it happened, and she barely remembers the accident or being brought back to life. At that moment, though, she became one of the first subjects in a covert government program that tests a drug called Revive.
Now fifteen, Daisy has died and been Revived five times. Each death means a new name, a new city, a new identity. The only constant in Daisy's life is constant change.
Then Daisy meets Matt and Audrey McKean, charismatic siblings who quickly become her first real friends. But if she's ever to have a normal life, Daisy must escape from an experiment that's much larger--and more sinister--than she ever imagined.
From its striking first chapter to its emotionally charged ending, Cat Patrick's Revived is a riveting story about what happens when life and death collide.

Doesn't that just sound new and interesting? When I first read ABOUT the book, I was so intrigued that I downloaded it to my Nook right away, even though I was in the middle of another book at the time. I jumped right in and kept staying up way too late on school nights because I just NEEDED to know what happened next. Cat Patrick did an amazing job at telling Daisy's story, and the entire book was emotional and gripping. I highly suggest this to all of my reader friends. Revived is one book you DON'T want to miss!
