Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"Daisy is a dead girl — several times over. Not yet 16, she's been resurrected five times. She is part of a secret government program for testing an experimental drug, Revive, which can bring otherwise healthy accident victims to life again. Reanimation is not easy to keep under wraps, and with every death comes a move to a new school with new secrets to keep. After Daisy's latest demise from anaphylactic shock, that new home is Omaha, Neb. There, she lives with two agents who pose as her parents while keeping strict watch over Daisy's health and operating a supercomputing lab in the basement. Despite this, Daisy moves freely at school, hangs out with her friend Audrey, and falls in love with Audrey's brother, Matt. Credulity is strained by Daisy's propensity for accidents, necessitating repeated use of Revive; nevertheless, Patrick (Forgotten) carries this improbability off with her fluid and observant prose. Daisy evolves from a detached and conformist drone to a young woman with budding emotions, attachments, and a deeper understanding of what it means to live and die. Ages 12 – up. Agent: Daniel Lazar, Writers House. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
