Summary/ product description: “As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life.
A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency’s true goals, she realizes she’s at the center of something much larger—and more sinister—than she ever imagined.”

My Rating: êêêê1/2

My Review: This book had me from the beginning. Daisy’s narration keeps the reader interested, and the way she talks about her life of lies. The book is very well written, and all the emotions are clear. The whole revive thing reminded me of the Revenants series, only Daisy isn’t immortal, it’s just the drug saving her. The whole God Project and the agents reminds me of FBI and other sci-fi books I love.

I think Audrey’s and awesome character. Daisy and her became friends really fast. I was really sad when I read that Audrey was sick. And Matt, Audrey’s brother, is pretty hot. I love the romance between him and Daisy. Sure, the whole thing about dating your best friends brother is a little overdone, but it’s okay. At least you know what you’re getting into from his sister. The only strange character is Megan, whose transgender. It’s kind of confusing.

This book is a standalone, so the plot had to wrap up at the end, and it did. Perfectly. I recommend this if you like non-dystopian sci-fi or even contemporary.

Cover Art Review: Pretty cool cover. I thought she was trapped in ice at first, but she’s ripping some sheet. Either way, it looks very sci-fi.
