My Opinion :

Revived was great and suspenseful! 

I was thrilled to receive this book, since I had read Forgotten by the same author and I really liked it! And, of course, the AMAZING cover made me even more excited. I mean, who doesn't like an awesome cover that draws you in?

Revived is about Daisy, a girl who has been revived 5 times. Being Revived means coming back from death. It's a drug called Revive that gets you back alive. And, every time you have to be Revived, you have to change your name and go away. But, God, the person who has created the Revive program, is starting to get crazy by killing people who know about thte program and shouldn't. Like Matt, Daisy'S boyfriend and Audrey (Audrey is Daisy's best friend) 'S brother. Because Daisy has told him all about the program. But, when Audrey dies of cancer... they try the drug on Audrey, even though it can't work on cancer.

The writing in Revived wasn't anything that special, but it was pretty fast-paced, although sometimes there wasn't enough action, it was pretty good.

Although... I thought the romance wasn't believable. I mean.... Daisy sees Matt once in English, and then she gets a crush, then she finds out he's Audrey's brother and they fall in love. It just.... I didn't think it was believable enough, and if you know me, I love romance. But, the romance has to be done good, or else it's just not really romance, for me :S

Daisy was, at times, annoying, especially when she tried being like a stupid teenager. I mean, even if you don,t want to get noticed, you don't have to act. *sigh* But, at other times, she just felt awesome and nice.

Matt was sometimes annoying too... he kept getting angry, then being nice, then going back to being angry. That just frustrated me :S BUT... he was cute at times.

I think what I liked best in Revived was the main plot. The thing about being brought back from the dead, and not being like a zombie... it was just a fresh idea.
