Format: Kindle Edition
Look at the description, doesn't that sound exciting? Get over it, this isn't what the book was about.

15 year old Daisy gets bitten by a bee. She is allergic, forgot her epipen; therefore, she dies. Don't worry, she is revived for the 5th time, but she is forced to move to Omaha because dead girls don't come back.

From here on out, the story is truly about making new friends in Omaha, getting a boyfriend, and losing someone who cannot be revived.

While Daisy does become aware of the fact that something strange is going on in the program, she only shares with Megan, Megan has someone search for a new utility bill, they do one google, and Daisy calls the person. Wasn't that exciting?

The rest is handled by Mason, Daisy's agent pretend dad, and other unknown government agents. We are told that they handle it, but that portion of the story is presented second-hand as an anecdote. Sure, Daisy gets to finally talk to God, the crazed inventor of Revive, and she interacts with Jesus, God's crazy daughter. None of this happens until the very end.

I was left unexcited by Daisy and her new school excitement.

The reality is that the Revive storyline was presented very peripherally, and the Revive ending almost appeared to be an afterthought. Revive was not what the story was about. It was the circumstances that caused the new friend and boyfriend storyline to be presented.

I am very disappointed.

This is my second Cat Patrick book. I read "Forgotten" last year and really enjoyed it. I never would have imagined that "Revived" would be even better than "Forgotten". I love both books but there's a special place in my heart for "Revived".

Daisy lives a very unique life. She's in the Revive test program so in many ways her life isn't really her own. She lives with Mason, a psychologist with the Revive program who also serves as her guardian and father figure, and Cassie, an agent with the program who's a total workaholic and pretends to be both married to Mason and Daisy's mother. They're nice enough people (especially Mason) but Daisy is definitely more independent since she's been raised this way. Additionally her life is pretty transient. They can't stay very long in one place - mostly due the fact that Daisy has some sort of accident and has to be brought back to life with another dose of Revive. When that happens, they have to pick up and move somewhere else because obviously she can't go back to school after dying the day before.

All this doesn't seem to affect Daisy much on the surface but when she arrives in Omaha, Nebraska after leaving yet another school/house/town, she decides that things will be different here. She puts herself out there and chooses to engage the people around her. Because of this she meets Audrey, who becomes her best friend and Matt, Audrey's hot brother and Daisy's love interest. I loved this aspect of the story just as much as I did the mystery surrounding the Revive program. Daisy has lived her 15 years with a very "hands off" approach to relationships and then suddenly she experiences both deep friendship and romance.

Format: Hardcover
I've never read anything else by this author, and most likely won't. This book had so much unrealized potential. It's a very interesting premise, but the author failed to take it much past the starting point, particularly in the characters. The big reveal about Audrey was telegraphed far in advance. That's a minor complaint, but others are not. Matt was like a cardboard cutout of a perfect boyfriend: super cute and megahumble, always says the right thing, loyal and uncomplicated, not pressuring Daisy for sex ever, etc. Cassie is a completely undeveloped character, as is Megan. So she's transgendered. Great, so Daisy is enlightened and liberal. Where's the tension that could create in life, in relationships? What's the point of having a character be transgendered when that has nothing to do with the plot, when it reveals nothing about any of the other characters except as a big flag waving their progressive values (which again, have nothing to do with the plot) and when the transgendered character has no storyline of her own? I think it's good that the author included a transgendered character, but not so good that she left that character completely 2-dimensional and peripheral. And Mason is like the father equivalent of Matt -- much too perfect. And "God" might as well be Dr. Evil.

I would have loved to see more metaphysical exploration of the nature of death and loss, felt more sense of real danger and risk. The ending fell flat. Why move all the way across country because it's "safer" for Matt and then let them continue dating long-distance anyway? And why didn't Daisy get into trouble for stealing the formula ("we'll talk about this later" says Cassie, and then it's never mentioned again), and why so little poignancy and drama around a scenario that had so much potential for it?

I knew I was going to adore this book from the beginning. I absolutely loved Cat's debut novel Forgotten. I can say without hesitation that Cat Patrick is one of the most original YA authors out there. Forgotten was a mind-bending read and I'm saying this in a good way. Revived was equally amazing!

What I like most about Revived is the story line flow. I finished this book in 2 days. It was that good. I loved the idea behind Revived. I've never read anything like it and Patrick's writing made it an easy read. The book has a nice opening. You get sucked in from page one and after that, is really hard to put the book down.

This book is not only about a drug that brings people back from death, is much more than that. The relationships are amazingly well developed. You can't help but fall in love with every single character. I think Megan and Audrey were my favorites but I still love Daisy and Matt. As you can see is hard to pick a favorite character in this book. Be prepared, I went trough my arsenal of emotions while reading Revived.
