Denton Little’s Deathdate

Denton Little’s Deathdate by Lance Rubin, 346 pages

Denton Little has always known what day he would die.  Unfortunately, he was slated to die young, but that’s just the way it is.  The day before Denton’s deathdate becomes very full, very quickly, with hangovers, crazy classmates, harassing police officers, girlfriends, best friends, new crushes, and family drama.  This story is actually really funny in places but also interesting in the premise of knowing when you are going to die.  I would definitely give this to teens that like humor and realistic fiction.  Despite the technology allowing people to know when they will die, this doesn’t read like science fiction at all.
