Actually 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Revived ​is a fast-paced sci-fi thriller that I couldn't put down. I'm normally not into science fiction, but the medical technology developed to bring people back from the dead is really engrossing and kept me reading until the very last page. I love a book that keeps me guessing and making predictions which ​Revived ​did over and over again. I felt like I was on the same page as Daisy because just as she was questioning something or coming to a realization, I was as well. I can easily see Cat Patrick's newest novel becoming a big hit in my classroom and with teens in general for the plot alone. I can't imagine being brought back to life and then needing to move, create a new identity, and trying to keep all of that a secret. It forces Daisy to keep close relationships at bay which is difficult for any teenager. Readers might also be drawn to Revived because some are labeling it dystopian, but I think it's more futuristic science fiction. Either way it's labeled it can ladder between dystopian and sci-fi titles easily.
