monoxide Mourning Child Grief Support Group Curriculum poisoning from swimming on a lakeDaisy sersonality is not terribly endearing She s a typical teenager which is to say she is very silly very concerned with boys and Judgment Day (Time of Judgment Trilogy, popularity There s nothing wrong with that given the age of the character but when reading a book I would like my heroines to be a little mature and show some signs of introspection and growth There is very little of it in this book Daisy has died so many time that she s taken it for granted in herself and when it comes to death in someone she slowly comes to care about she completely freaks out and acts irrationallyThe Reviveroject is an extremely secretive one If Daisy were a CIA agent she wouldn t last half a second because the instant she falls for Matt and learns that his sister and her friend is dying she spills the beans Knowing the secrecy of the A Full Scholarship (Sex Powers University 1) project knowing how important it is she endangers herself and this important secret right away which I thought was unbelievably foolish Falling in love with a boy and then throwing away everything just like that is not a hallmark of a deep complex character but of a shallow stupid foolish little teenager who thinks only of herself and her best interests which for the moment rests in keeping her friend alive so she can continue her mission of dating said friend s SUPER HOT BROTHERTheremise of the book lacks credibility too Why do they have to keep running away when she dies It s not that uncommon for someone to die for a short while then brought back to life It s not that incredible at all It s certainly a lot easier to be brought to a hospital or brought somewhere Summer Break (Gods at Eighteen 3)

residents so nobody suspects anything s wrong Oh and kill off anyone who suspects anything s out of the ordinary with the grieving family who just left town So much fewer bodies to clean up Literally It s one of the worst The Black Shriving (Chronicles of the Black Gate premise I ve ever read in a YA sci fi and that s saying considerably given the gapinglot holes that freuent too many ieces of YA sci fi and dystopian fiction these daysIn every good mystery there is an element of subtlety involved The reader should always be guessing the allusions and clues need to be there but with such style and finesse that it s hard to discern Not so with this book The clues are as subtly hidden as a urple olka dotted cowMovement near a lanter catches my eye A man in a blue button down and jeans is standing there waiting for someone The funny thing is that he looks right at me when I look at him He watches me for a second like a curious stranger might then looks away taking out his Mama Ds pasta pizza phone and typing on the keyboardHe s got the same robotic look that Cassie has that the agents in the cleanup crews haveHMM WHO COULD HE BE I WONDERAnd Matt lovely dreamboat Matt Sooooooooooo much hotter than Jake Gyllenhall I swear to god that s what she says Unbelievably gullible naive Matt who buys Daisy s incredibly story at the drop of ain And need I mention this jewel My girlfriend started college this year We felt like it wouldn t work long distance Well I felt that way She wanted to stay together Now in addition to jealous I feel inferior My lanky fifteen year old self is no match for a college girl Possibly reading my anxiety Matt adds She s a bitch Such a gentleman I can see why Daisy fell for him As God the creator of Revive not the actual Lord although it would have been true either way says to Daisy Bad moveWhat a colossal waste of Revive you were I couldn t have said it better myself Revived is okay It is less sci fi and of contemporaryrealistic fiction in my opinion This is fine actually I understand it Revived just wants to tell a story where the main character is aiming for a normal life attend school have friends etc even it is somehow hopeless especially if one is a The Expected One (Magdalene Line Trilogy, part of secret experiment running by a secret organization Then add the twist that this secret organization isn t really worth trusting forIt s nothing new I have read several novels with this kind oflot but I have no issues with it whatsoever I just hope for the best that in the end I will like it or even love the bookBut the thing with Revived is that my hope has been shoved under the rug by the insta love I ended up overly unsatisfied in the end The main character Daisy is so head over h WARNING SPOILERS AHEADYou d think dying 5 times over will make one sensibleEvidently notAt least for Daisy McDaniel her real nameDaisy Daisy Daisy Now what can I say about our dear dear Betty Fedora Issue One protagonist She s a selfish little girl who thinks the world revolves only around her no doubt irresponsible and totally immature to boot Having to shift houses and take up new identity everytime she dies and this of course applies to everyone assigned to babysit her I would think that she will take betterrecaution to Aubrey Beardsley, The Man And His Work prevent her own death But NO Ourrecious Daisy here decides to take all the unnecessary risks like taking a shortcut through a dark alley I know and still have the NERVE to grumble about how much she WANTS TO REMAIN AT WHERE SHE IS Then be responsible and take your stupid EpiPen along with you and actually I have no idea what s it supposed to do since there s no real explanation I m guessing save her lifeThat s not the worst yet Stupid heroines I can deal with if I could survive LUCE PRICE I sure as hell can survive Daisy but telling your boyfriend about Revive a drug that can supposedly bring the dead back to life but only works on healthy bodies ie disease free and expect him NOT to ask you to steal the drug for him when he has a sister dying from cancer Now that s just lain dumbimage error Revived committed suicide early on but somehow it was saved It was Revived Dun dun dunThe Science Oh dear god the scienceRevive is a drug which brings the recently dead back to life though it heals no wounds and cures no diseaseAdrenaline anyone Has this not been discovered in this world yet Why yes it has Daisy has epi ens on hand for a deadly allergy So how is it any different from adrenaline There s no answer because Revive s discovery was never explained Nor is the state of any Revived individual Are they the living dead Still human Able to reproduce No ideaAlsoA bus crash with no survivors would mean lots of corpses with fatal injuries Only those who d died by Off 13 passive means like asphyxiation might be revivable Yet they tried the drug out on a child with a foreign bodyiercing his brain facepalm Then again in this experiment no other treatment can be Amata Means Beloved performed in addition to Revive s administration No CPR This means no circulation of oxygenated blood to the brain heart and lungs critical organs this drug needs to work on So how is it going to get to its target destination from the injection site No defibrillation to restart the heart The drug would have to be administered with 5 minutes of flat lining to avoid risking brain damage or brain death But it would do no good if Revive can t be transported around the body in order to do its job Actual revival rate MINISCULEViability of drug under these conditions NONE In conjunction with other resuscitation methods it wouldrobably act like adrenaline ossibly keeping someone alive long enough for surgery But for the sake of secrecy and the experiment

The Novel people hanging out with friends doing ordinary things and mentioning of science y thingsDo you know what a huge flaw in this book is WE DON T KNOW HOW THE HECK PEOPLE MADE REVIVE So you expect me to believe thateople just randomly found out a drug that you inject somebody with a syringe with but you re not going to tell us how this amazing discovery was made Okay I m not going along with that I m sorry but if you re trying to be a science fiction book with contemporary elements or be a contemporary novel with science elements in the background compared to the romance like this book you need to explain the science elements And if you can t even give us a stupid random reason at all then the author should not be writing science fictionI did not find one character in this book relatable or just likeable There very flat I didn t connect with them didn t sympathize with them and they re not going to be eople that I ll be thinking about months from now The love interest felt flat and of course he was uber hot Audrey should be the one we really sympathize with the most since you find out some big secret about her health but I didn t Daisy was whiny she was far concerned with friends and boys to advance the lot in any significant way other than finding stuff by chance and oh my God how many times can you get freakin stung by bees You re deathly allergic to them so why don t you ever learn to be careful I m not an expert on CPR but I know for a fact the chances of you being brought back to life with CPR after being dead for twelve minutes is virtually impossible So don t you dare try and Left to Die-a First Hand Account of Life in the Superdome during Hurricane Katrina pull that on me I know for a fact that she should ve been brain dead by the time you saved her So the climax of this stupid book is just not only virtually medically impossible but it s very convenient for Daisy and it comes too easy Maybe I was just expecting far too much from this book but I think it s the fact that the marketing team was trying to make it look either far better or far different from what it really was some starry eyed teen romance with random sci fi elements to try and hook readers but only a reader who doesn t care how the heck it sossible just that it s there I read Cat Patrick s debut and while I struggled with the Dolphin Diaries Bind-Up premise a lot I really enjoyed her writing style enough that I wanted to read her sopho novel Revived From the outset I really enjoy Cat Patrick s breezy writing style Her narratives are so easy to slip into her characters likeable Daisy narrates like a breath of fresh air She s chatty and vulnerable and just the right kind of uniue withassions and uirks It s Daisy that held me fast to the storyThe The Wingman Chronicles premise is so intriguing The set up is really well done The mystery and clues and little investigations were compelling enough Yet as thelot Flood Legends progressed I found myself unsettled Things started feeling messy like there were all these foundations laid for awesomeness and then the book shifted into a kind of romance But even so there were little seeds of doubt thrown in with the love interest that had me unsettled and wary The friendship Patrick crafted between the two girls was great and then when things happened it felt like it went nowhere and nearly served nourpose I feel a bit like there was this awesome The Best Of Saint Louis premise that got too complicated and it was all mashed up with a real contemporary vibe and in the end neither the sci fi ish stuff not the contemporary stuff worked for me Call me conflicted I liked the characters but got lost in the story I loved theremise but the characters got in the way of really smashing it As soon as I finished reading Revived I rushed to GoodReads to check my friends ratings and they were exactly what I expected them to be eight out of ten gave this book three stars just like I did In my experience there are two types of three star ratings the I liked this but didn t love it three stars and the I have no idea how to rate this three stars Revived undoubtedly belongs to the former It wasn t bad by any standard but it certainly wasn t captivating either I suppose describing a book as merely enjoyable isn t much of a compliment when I so badly hoped to need the words. It started with a bus crashDaisy 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 rogram that tests a drug called ReviveNow fi.

Like exciting mind blowing and spectacular Dying is very unpleasant Fifteen year old Daisy McDaniel should know she s done it five tim Rating 35 out of 5 starsImagine dying 5 times and being brought back to life after every single death This is Daisy s life in a secret government agency led by an ominous figure they call God and as a test subject to a drug that they call Revive cues oooh ing Revived was nothing like I expected it to be Instead of a fast aced book about a zombie like test subject this book has of a contemporary feel to it sweet warm easy to relate to I may be an expert at guessing what s going to happen in a book early on but the deceiving first half made me unprepared for the surprise twist in the faster last uarterDaisy is a character I adored from the get go Along with co hosting a hilarious blog yup she s a blogger with her best friend Megan she has such a big heart and brings the word real to teenager without being unbearable They say curiosity killed the cat but Daisy s curiosity is what drives the mystery behind the whole God operationMatt s a nice guy although he s definitely no Luke Henry but I just couldn t connect with the romance It didn t have enough development or chemistry to entrap me and the way that Daisy told Matt everything so soon made me want to shake her But you ll love the other colourful characters like Matt s sister Audrey and Daisy s arentsWith the same kind of flowing rose and smile worthy cast that Cat Patrick brought in Forgotten added to a fresh new idea never taken up before Revived asks you the uestion What would you do if you had the chance to live again when other Detour (Something in Common, people didn t BUY or BORROW This book wasn t exactly the intense must buy I was expecting but it shouldn t be a book you skip over I actually really adored it and am glad to have it on my shelf Original review at Mimi Valentine s YA Review Blog When I first heard about this one a lot ofeople were tossing around the word dystopia at the time I was reading Slated which is a dystopia and which is about a girl whose memory is wiped and she has to start over When I heard about this I thought the concept was マジック・ツリーハウス〈1〉恐竜の谷の大冒険 pretty similar and I was curious to see how they dlay off of each other But this is not dystopian after all Nor do I think it was meant to be and I think it s stronger for not taking that Bear Creek Road path Revived takeslace now and is told in a way that makes it completely Good Authority Good Authority plausible for this type of thing covert experiments on new drugs somewhat shady government outfits etc to be going on right under our noses I think a lot of authors would have tried to make this a doom and gloom dystopia and I think that srobably why so many Carneycopia people were tossing around that word But I have to say I m really glad it s not I appreciate that Cat Patrick didn t take that route and instead made it a insular relatable story As contemporary science fiction it works as a dystopia it would fall flatBut because I had been anticipating a dystopian story this didn t entirely go where I was expecting it to And even once I started reading the story and realized that it wasn t dystopia readjusted myerception and thought I had the story all figured out it still didn t go exactly where I was expecting it to And this was a good thing I mean it did go there in the end it worked its way back to the shady covert sci fi thing but there was a detour through some much human relatable territory I wasn t expecting and it made it interesting and Captives of New Pompeii (New Pompeii, poignant as a result Much human and natural than it would otherwise have been I don t want to risk giving anything away but I wasleasantly surprised by the laces Patrick took this and the way it sort of muddled genres into something realistic and authentic for Daisy the MCAnd speaking of Daisy was a really good main character and she was surrounded by an excellent supporting cast I really loved her relationships with other eople in the book and how organic they felt there could have been some risk of insta lovey ness but this was one of those rare cases of the speed of things making absolute sense The relationships are a very believable level of gooey and tempered by some darker real life things which coupled with the characters reactions to those things keeps the story safe from disgusting YA love levels I also especially loved Daisy s relationship with her not really fathersecret agent Mason This was such a great dynamic and it really brought a lot of Beard Necessities (Winston Brothers, personal feel to the story especially compared to most YA lit where adult characters andarental figures are mostly dead missing or absenteeI really loved the God Project the secret testing of the drug Revive Patrick explores the murkiness of the morality in a thing like this with how the roject was dealt with the shadowy megalomaniacal aspect the carelessness with life that would come from being able to cheat death etc Daisy s realizations of the chances she s been given and how cavalier she has always been about death when she suddenly has to confront the finality of it was effective and well done and it gave the book dimension I wasn t expecting I did see the end and the villains coming a mile away but in a dramatic ironyintentional way not an obtuse why doesn t she get it way And there were a couple of things that were revealed here and there the depth of the conspiracy and the zealotry that I wasn t expecting but was leasantly The Agile Team Handbook, 2nd Edition pleased to findAll in all Revived was very uick readable and entertaining It s also a very rare stand alone woot woot which always makes me happy I love when an author can give you just 1 complete novel and not be afraid to leave the ending just open enough that you can build your own idea of what will happen to the characters and what their futures will hold And on a random note I love the cover It s one of those rare instances of aretty cover actually meaning something to the book but in an abstract thoughtful way Well done As readers we love to hate our Too Stupid To Live characters Those loveable Mary Sues who knowingly walk into impossible situations do irresponsibly stupid things like singlehandedly confronting monsters and angry men who could beat them up with a finger They re the horror movie euivalent of the innocent virgin who walk down a basement when we the viewer are screaming at them to just stop in front of the screen But as much as we make fun of these charactersthey have one thing in common they re as hard to kill as cockroaches Not so for our heroine in this book no Daisy is literally Too Stupid To Live So much that she dies multiple times twice in the same wayIt s rather appropriate that her name is Daisy given that she s constantly Her Mothers Daughter pushing them upOur intrepid heroine first died at the age of four through no fault of her own She was in a group of fourteen kids travelling in a bus when there was an accident then they were chosen to be in a test group for a drug called Revive The drug aptly named reviveseople from death It has been kept a secret all these years by the creator of the drug known as God and each subject of the experiment lives with jack of all trade Agents who Howard Stern Comes Again pretend to be theirarents Every time a child dies he or she and their family move on to a new home a new Spellbound place a new identity The drug is such a secret that they can t even fly lest the drug is stolen or discovered during baggage check I thought theremise for all the moving and secrecy was idiotic and the heroine herself is not much betterIn the beginning of the book Daisy dies from a bee sting She s allergic to bees she knows that But why didn t she have an Epi Pen on herI spent way too long deciding what to wear leaving only five minutes to arrange my hair into something resembling a style I left for school in a rush remembering the EpiPen which Cant Fake This probably would have saved my life halfway down the block I wasn t so late that I couldn t have gone back but for some reason I didn tHerrevious deaths were caused by similarly treacherous situationsI wolfed down my PBJ then started in on my grapes stuffing than a handful in at once A monstrous red grape got lodged in my windpipeWell she was only five and a half then so accidents do happenBut thenin the summer before seventh gradeI died from asphyxiaif we re getting technical I was swimming near some houseboats at the reservoir and got carbon monoxide Writing Myths poisoning from an idling boat Carbon monoxideoisoning What the actual fuck How stupid do you have to be to be swimming behind a boat for that long I do not claim to be. Fteen 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 changeThen Daisy meets Matt and Audrey McKean charismatic siblings who uickly become her first real friends But if she's
