YA Review: Revived

RevivedRevived by Cat Patrick (Hardie Grant Egmont)
PB RRP $22.95
ISBN 978-192169063-1

This is the second book from author Cat Patrick. Her first was Forgotten, about a teenage girl who overnight forgets everything that happened that day. It is a fantastic premise and story.

Revived does not disappoint. Cat Patrick has a wonderful imagination. Once again she manages to build an intriguing medical world. In this story we follow Daisy, who is a medical trial participant for a drug called Revive. The drug brings healthy people back from death and it is imperative that it is kept a secret. Daisy has officially died on five separate occasions, with each death and revival she has to move state and reinvent herself. Each move proves to challenge all of her previous thoughts and assumptions about living, friendships, romance, trust and death.

This is a great coming of age story. The medical aspects of it make it a great read that takes the familiar teenage issues and sets them side by side with science, intrigue and action.

Cat Patrick has announced her third book on and I am looking forward to getting a hold of it. This is an author to follow.
