I bought this book because I needed something new—and thought the cover was intriguing. Who/What is she looking at?
Daisy (our narrator) is a girl who has died 5 times and been revived using a serum. She is in protective custody of a “fake parents” who are a part of a large organization that is measuring the effects on the control group for 30 years. Every time she dies---she moves and assumes a new name. At the beginning of the book Daisy is a lone wolf flippant about these deaths---and as the book progresses we get to watch Daisy bloom into an great friend who more than understands death.
I really don’t want to spoil---so, let me just say that I very much enjoyed the characters, the plot-----loved it SO much. But, almost equally so, I am disappointed by the end. It feels rushed. And, while I almost loathe to say this (since there are so many trilogies out there) this one I felt like could justify one, easily. The depth of her characters could be explored A LOT more. Also, I have questions that linger and haunt. I have theories that I will never know if I am correct about. AND, perhaps most importantly, what is going to happen with/to Daisy and Matt in the long haul?
As an author isn’t that a great problem to have though? I WANT MORE!!! PLEASE?!?
Tara Sands did well. I didn't really notice her---and I mean that in the best way possible. She facilitated the book in a way that didn't distract. I am finding more and more that is important to me.
All in all---I find myself split. I loved the characters------but man, since this is a stand alone I really wanted to finish the book on a high with all my questions answered. And, I really didn't get that.
Is it too late to reconsider a sequel?? I'd definitely read it.

I read the audiobook, or had it read to me! Awesome narrator!! Tara Sands really makes the book sing!
Great concept. The end could have had more of a punch but enjoyable none the less!
Daisy was a really great character and I loved her story. All the intrigue was very well done.
I liked Matt until he did something I found offensive and showed his true nature. In the end I though Daisy could do better!
Really well written story with engaging characters and terrifically paced action.
