Hardie Grant Egmont, 2012. ISBN 9781921690631.
Highly recommended. Daisy has died five times and each time been brought back with a super drug called Revive. Daisy has to move cities and change identity to avoid suspicion, each time she was Revived. Her latest move, Daisy has some unexpected complications; a new best friend and a hot crush. Daisy grows attached to her new home. At her new home, Daisy uncovers secrets and the more she learns, the more she wishes she didn't. When God starts showing up, Daisy gets suspicious.
Cat Patrick begins the book in a really interesting way  and then and gets straight to it. I liked that they main character died in the first two pages, you don't read that very much. All the characters were easy to like. The descriptions of the characters were really interesting and quite accurate; Cassie's description was my favourite and was amusing. The tragedy that happened midway through the book changed my perspective on the Revive serum.  The Australian book cover, to me, is from the first chapter, and is a good interpretation of that scene.
