Book Review: Revived by Cat Patrick.

RevivedRevived by Cat Patrick.
Book Summary: 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.

Liana's Summary: Daisy has died five times. Each time she was revived with the drug they gave her. She's part of the Revive program. Only a small group of people know about this drug. When Daisy gets relocated once again, because of her 'death', she meets Audrey, and Matt. Siblings. Becoming her immediate best friend and boyfriend. She can't afford to die and leave them-- so she has to spill the secret. Even if it can lead to horrible dangers.

Rate(1-10): 10

This book was freaking amazingly great. I totally loved it. First of all, I desperately wanted to read this book because my friend read it and typed a really informational review that got me interested desperately. And then the cover. And then the title. And then the synopsis. Amaaaaazing.

Okay. The main character, Daisy, died 5 times. And she's barely 15. Talk about accident prone. Aha. Well then, there are reasons why she died 5 times but I'm not gonna say anything

A lot of reviewers point that out to prove their point about how Daisy is really dislikable. I mean, there were parts in which she would get you really irritated, but come on. She's not that bad. But she's not really my favorite either. Lol.

When she met Matt I was like, JFDSKLJF:KLSJFAKLJFKLDSJAKLJKLFJDKLSJ F<3 <3 <3 AND HE'S HOT TOOOOO. But as I got to know him more I realized he was kind of a jerk. I don't know. Other readers might like him but I don't really. He has anger issues. )x Me no like.

So, therefore, my favorite is Audrey. I love that girl. She was so full of joy and she was so free and everything...

So the thing I loved most about this book is not the plot. It's the writing. Man, if this book had suckish writing I would have fallen asleep. I'm serious. I'm not a huge fan of Contemporary books. And the Revive drug didn't really make anything Dystopian. But Cat Patrick is flipping amazing. She kept me IN the book the WHOLE time. And huh, that rarely happens. I had to sit in this uncomfortable back-breaking position on my bed, holding a flashlight, and at the same time making sure my mom didn't see me read. (I still don't have my own room. I know, sad.) But this book was totally worth it. I read it during lunch at school and even with the loudness and ratchetness of some people, I understood it. Amazing. The ending was really nice. Loved it.

I would have loved this book a lot more if I couldn't guess many things. Like, the author did a REALLY good job of foreshadowing that I wasn't surprised at most of the twists. But overall, I really did like this book.

I guess, quotes~

"..undeniably, unbelievably hot."

"..the kind that sexy TV villains have..."

The what?!

"He's a junior at Victory."

I bet it's that guy in her English class.

"..a few baby carrots."


"I stayed up late reading,"


"If you ever take off without telling me again, you're going to be grounded for the rest of your life."

"I like someone else now."

And that someone must be her.

"You're a year older than me."


"Not to be gross or anything, but did you and my brother do it or something?"

"What about you?" I ask seriously. "You never talk about any guys besides celebrities."


"Good idea,"

"I don't really get it. I mean, he's sort of old."


"Her name is Nora."

Knew it.

"But it doesn't work on adults."

"I know!" Mason shouts. He flips around and stares at me. He looks angry,..

But.. Mason's never angry.

"..I feel like giving my dad the finger."


And yeah, that's it! What did you think of this review? (:

  1. I have had this one on my radar for awhile. Overall it sounds like a solid read. it is too bad that there was much of the story that was so predictable. Thanks for the great review.
