Publisher's Summary

The Snapchat Original series, Denton's Deathdate, is here - check it out!

Get ready to die laughing: This is an outrageously funny ride through the last hours of a teenager’s life as he searches for love, meaning, answers, and (just maybe) a way to live on.

Denton Little’s Deathdate takes place in a world exactly like our own except that everyone knows the day on which they will die. For Denton, that’s in just two days - the day of his senior prom.

Despite his early deathdate, Denton has always wanted to live a normal life, but his final days are filled with dramatic firsts. First hangover. First sex. First love triangle - as the first sex seems to have happened not with his adoring girlfriend, but with his best friend’s hostile sister. (Though he’s not totally sure - see, first hangover). His anxiety builds when he discovers a strange purple rash making its way up his body. Is this what will kill him? And then a strange man shows up at his funeral, claiming to have known Denton’s long-deceased mother, and warning him to beware of suspicious government characters...

Suddenly Denton’s life is filled with mysterious questions and precious little time to find the answers. Fall in love with Denton Little!

Critic Reviews

"Quirky and highly original." ( School Library Journal)

"Rubin is really funny but like John Green, he manages to be poignant at the same time. You'll laugh out loud while you read this, but you're probably going to tear up a bit too." (Bustle)

"The dialogue is witty and raunchy, the plot is uniquely twisted, and the ending is to die for. This book will fly off the shelves." (VOYA)

Funny, well-written story with sub-par audio

The novel was funny and engaging. The audio, performed by the book's author, left a little to be desired. There is no voice distinction between characters, not to mention, he reads in a bit of a monotone.
That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the novel, as did my early teen children.

Wow, I really enjoyed this book!

Would you listen to Denton Little's Deathdate again? Why?

Yes. The story line was great. The concept is based a little on that movie "Logan's Run" from the 80s. It has some pretty funny and light moments in it. Although the story is about a 17 year old, I thought it appealed to readers of all ages and I am over 50.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Denton and his best friend. This two are just quite funny together along with the sister Veronica. Oh and also the grandpa has some great lines.

What does Lance Rubin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Lance did a great job reading his own book. He knew how he wanted his characters to sound and just where in their talking to each other to emphasize a point.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I thought the book was so good that I recommended to my husband that he should listen to it too and he will.

Any additional comments?

Only that if you are like murder/fantasy mysteries like I do (Dean Koontz, Jo Nesbo, James Butcher, Charlaine Harris) then this will be a good different direction book to try.

don't read

this book is horrible and shows most everything wrong with kids these days I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy and deserves no stars but that's not an option
