After dying five times- Daisy is getting pretty tired of it. She has to relocate each time, with a new name, school, everything- a new life. It’s an intriguing plot that’s quick paced, an easy read, and it’s one that you can get lost in quickly. Revive is the drug that brings people back to life, and Daisy is part of that program.
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy.
She is a typical teenage girl- immature, silly, obsessed with popularity, you get the point. Which is fine for the immature, silly, popularity-obsessed teenage girls who read it; but I’d have liked the main character to be a little bit more mature. I find it a little bit silly that she died 5 times in 11 years purely by accident. As time went on, though, she began to grow on me a little bit- and by the end, I was just as broken as she was when the (surprisingly sad) ending came along.
Back to Revive! The creator has been given the name “God” due to his ability to bring people back to life. Those who work in the program are called his “disciples”.
The plot had a lot of promise! It was so, so interesting. The beginning was so easy to get lost in. This didn’t live up to Forgotten, which is incredible. Daisy’s relationship was quite predictable. But I’d have loved for more to be spent on the program- especially because the entire plot went so much deeper that there was a lot more that could have come out of this.
I loved her relationship with Mason, her “parental figure” for this book. They had such a believable father/daughter relationship. I loved Megan and Audrey. Matt…he’s a slightly different story- his character wasn’t as fleshed out as I would have preferred. I say that about a lot of characters, but it’s true!
No matter how much I’ve pointed out the low points- there are also a lot of highs, and I’d definitely recommend this. Age- early teen, I guess! 12-14, because it’s easiest to relate to Daisy. But you can read it whenever.
I’ll just finish with a quote: “Anger is manageable. Sadness is heartbreaking.”
Not sure why I love that so much, but I do.
