Summary

You only live once - unless you're Denton Little!
Denton Little lives in a world exactly like our own except that everyone knows the day on which they will die. The good news: Denton has lived through his deathdate. Yay! The bad news: He's being chased by the DIA (Death Investigation Agency), he can never see his family again, and he may now die anytime. Huh. Cheating death isn't quite as awesome as Denton would have thought....
Lance Rubin's debut novel, Denton Little's Deathdate, showed listeners just how funny and poignant imminent death could be. Now in this sequel, he takes on the big questions about life. How do we cope, knowing we could die at any time? Would you save someone from dying even if they were a horrible person? Is it wrong to kiss the girl your best friend is crushing on if she's really into you instead? What if she's wearing bacon lip gloss?

Sequel with smarts, heart and humour.

Sequel that makes the world of deathdates feel possible, it has smarts and a fast-moving amusing plot.

This really must be read after the first book. It flows straight on after the events of that, and I could have done with a reminder of the plot and characters - it's been a couple of years since I read it.

I soon caught back up, mostly. Denton Little was meant to die on Prom Night - everyone in his world is told the date they will die when they are children, and nothing can change this date.

But Denton didn't die, and now he gets to find out why. And maybe even help other people to miss their own dates with Death... will he? Should he? Does he have the right to choose for other people, and what if he has the power but doesn't want to use it?

With moral conundrums underlying the story, it's a teenage tale as well, about crushes, and friendships, and parents. It's wickedly funny at times, with some great scenes as Denton debates using his 'gift'.

Love the concept, and though I wondered early on about the way the story was going, as it turned into a story involving Denton and his friends again, I settled into the plot.

Surprisingly, it's the author narrating his own book. He did a grand job, capturing the voice of Denton and his adolescent humour well. It was a good choice for audio, flowing nicely and the format suitable for the style of book.

A few swear words and scenes of a sexual nature, it may be unadvised for younger teens. This is probably recommended for ages 14 and over.

With thanks to Nudge Books for the sample Audible copy.

Good sequel

If you've read the first book and enjoyed it, this book will not disappoint. Things start to unfold in this sequel and there's plenty of twist to keep you entertained. And while the book may leave you with questions, You get a sense of closure.

Charming and funny and delightful

Loved both Denton books and highly recommend the audio which is read by the author. Laugh out loud funny and big hearted and a delightful romp from start to finish.
