This book sucks you in right away, which makes it a quick and enjoyable read. I also appreciate how it kind of combines different genres. While it has a science fiction element because of the main character's new identities each time she comes back to life, it also allows readers to identify with the main character because she experiences ordinary teen problems such as moving and making new friends.

This book was very intense. It is about a young girl named... well, she gets a new identity every time she revives. She lives with two agent parents who have been with her all her life. In her new revive, she is given an identity as Daisy. Soon, she meets new people who become her first real life friends. She falls in love with a really nice boy, but their relationship gets pretty confusing and boring after a while. The book gets pretty boring at many parts because of the boring conversations. The book is not exciting, enthusiastic, or fun. At some points, the book starts getting interesting again, and that makes me want to start reading again, but after a while, it starts getting boring again. The idea was unique but the story was not well planned. I didn't really enjoy this book, so I wouldn't really recommend it. Rating- 2/5 @Vanilla of Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This was a great book. I couldn't stop reading it. I liked the ending the best. I did know that "god" would turn against Daisy. I didn't see Cassie move coming though. I think Cat Patrick need to write a second book!!!!!

Good read, felt a little bit anticlimactic and the book blurb led me to expect more corruptness with the secret organization Daisy was apart of. Honestly, I thought the main focus of this book was not really the fact that Daisy has been Revived five times, but rather, it was more about dealing with loss and learning to live after a loved one's death. That seemed to be the biggest theme of the book.
Daisy and Matt were cute, but then their relationship got a little confusing. It all worked out in the end though, so I guess it's okay.?
Loved Mason :)

I really liked this book, but the references to God and Jesus were a little bit unnerving for me. I feel like they shouldn't be used like that, in a code-name sort of way.

This book was really refreshing after The Hunger Games gave me no hope for books of this genre. The plot was solid and so was the characters. The book was a little predictable, but that was the beauty of it.

The book Revived is one of the best books I have ever read. The authur Cat Patrick really knows how to draw the reader into the book at the beginning.

This book was just not my cup of tea. I pretty much just skimmed it to the end because I was curious what happened but it wasn't that great.

how would you feel if you could be revived (brought back from the dead). Well imagine this, Daisy West, formally Daisy Appleby has been revived 5 times! She's moved to a city in the USA and an adventure of a lifetime begins.

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.

My first read of Cat Patrick. Most unusual plot, well written with a twist in the ending. Lovely book, a fast read. Would recommend to others who like the man made supernatural. Will order her first book Forgotten and her last book Caught.
