Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week's pick is Revive by Cat Patrick, coming May 8, 2012 from Little, Brown.
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.
My Thoughts: I absolutely love this concept. A drug that can bring people back, set basically in our otherwise normal world? Yes. Please. The implications of this are fantastic, and I love that even in the summary, it's clear Cat is going there with it. I cannot wait to see how far she goes into all this, just how much trouble Daisy might find herself in, and the bigger picture going on that she doesn't even know about. Also, I love this cover. It's enticing, and pretty, and a little mysterious.
