What would you do if you kept dying?
Set in the near future, young adult novel ‘Revived’ by Cat Patrick looks at the life of the subject of a government experiment. Daisy died in a tragic bus accident and has since been revived five times by a mystery drug the FDA are testing.
However, all is not as it seems and mysteries and sub-plots litter Daisy’s world as she navigates the dramas of high school, and having to move and assume a new identity. Making a new friend, meeting a boy and discovering all is not what it seems with the head of the programme makes this a well written and convincing book.
I cried at the end and enjoyed the questions this book raised. Although the end seemed rushed and I was a little disappointed more wasn’t explained about the plot twists, it is a good honest read that keeps you entertained and transfixed. Who knows what shadowy goings-on there are in an organisation that literally holds your life in their hands.
