This book explores the last day of Denton Little's life. In his version of our world, people know their death dates and funerals are last parties for the living with people having a sitting as they wait for death to arrive. Denton's last day is a doozy with cryptic warnings, family secrets, even a bizarre outing to prom. ( )

Denton lives in a society where you know the day you are going to die. In Denton's case, he is scheduled to die on the day of his Senior Prom. Because he is going to die before he gets to the age of 21 he is called an "Early". As you would expect, people in this society prepare for their death with a "funeral" and get together on the day before. Then family and friends generally hang out together on the final day waiting for the end to come. Denton is trying to wrap up some things on his bucket list. His best friend Paolo is another Early and is scheduled to die 26 days after Denton. Things get weird as Denton wakes up in Paolo's sister's bed with a raging hangover and little recollection of what occurred the night before. He has to leave on a good note with his girlfriend and of course his stepmom, dad, and stepbrother. Things get complicated and he also develops a purple rash with strange red dots all over his body. As his death nears, some strange events lead to a shocking ending. Fun read based on an interesting premise. Would you want to know??? ( )

Denton Little's Death Date is a wild ride! Thanks to advances made in the field of AstroThanatoGenetics (ATG), just about everyone in the world knows the day they will die. They get to attend their own funerals, and on their death dates, family and friends hold a sitting, where they wait patiently for the guest of honor to perish. I found this concept to be really disturbing, and I actually had a nightmare about it! I was able to overcome the creep factor enough to enjoy the story, and I discovered that Denton Little's Death Date is actually quite humorous. Main character Denton is just a regular teenage boy, trying to navigate romance, sex, and friendship while coping with the fact that he is slated to die on prom night.

This book has some pretty shocking twists, and the ending sets up the sequel (which I now have to read) nicely. The audiobook is read by the author, and he does a great job of conveying all of the characters, especially Denton. I recommend this book for grades 9-12. There are quite a few sexual references, as well as drinking and drug use. -EC ( )

In a future where everyone in the first world is born knowing the exact date on which they will die, we meet Denton Little, whose death date is fast approaching--within the next 24 hours. Can I just say that the audiobook, narrated by the author, made me laugh out loud many times, though not at the idea of Denton's premature demise. No, Lance Rubin's voice is so authentic, so candidly teenage boy that you're too busy laughing to think about his passing on. And then you discover you're in the middle of a mystery. Someone wants to get to Denton before his death date, and there's a government connection to be continued in the sequel. I hope Rubin can keep up the humor. This was an entertaining and unusual story. ( )
