*note: I listen to this book most on audio, so I did not take full notes. Everything was very minor. A few light curse words, some kissing and a bus crash that killed 21 children (not graphic).

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.

Let me see here, where to start... Well this book was just okay for me. It is a mystery novel. Who is the bad guy? Who-done-it? type of book. I really didn't think it was all that well written, it was a little to juvenile for my taste. Well, it is a YA book, so maybe that's why. I'm not trying to be harsh. The character development was pretty good. The main character was okay. The book just seemed thin. Thin as in lacking something. There was just no meat. Do you understand what I mean when I say that? No substance, nothing to really keep me wanting more. However, I did finish the book, which says that it wasn't awful.

This is a quick easy read, anyone under fifteen, would probably find this book fascinating. Pretty much the book description (up top) says everything you need to know, to get started.

Audio Review:
The audiobook was awesome! The reader is Tara Sands, she is super good. She also read for Dead Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan, Unleashed by Nancy Holder and several others. That is really the only praise I can give for this book, is the fact that Tara Sands read it.

So there you have it, if you want to read this book, buy it on audio.
