Teenager Denton Little is about to die. In his society, everyone knows the day on which they will shuffle off their mortal coil. When the book opens Denton has 24 hours left, most of it already mapped out for him by convention and his family. If this sounds gloomy, think again. It is all highly entertaining: Denton is an amusing character, and his imminent demise keeps the tension high, while his complicated lovelife provides regular opportunity for some fairly broad humour. As the plot thickens, so comes hope that Denton’s deathdate may be further off than he’s thought. An original, funny, dramatic and surprisingly thought-provoking novel for teen readers. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Denton Little's Death Date by Lance Rubin

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 (the first sex seems to have happened not with his adoring girlfriend, but with his best friend's sister. Though he's not totally sure - see, first hangover). His anxiety builds when he discovers a mysterious purple rash making its way up his body. Is this what will kill him? 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 characters ...Suddenly Denton's life is filled with mysterious questions and precious little time to find the answers.
