Staff Reviews


Surprise, surprise, Denton Little survived his death date and now he is on the run from the government! With his birth mother on his side, and the government chasing him down, Denton is in a tricky situation. He could join her underground movement or abandon her and go back to his old family. Hanging in the balance is the life of his best friend, Paulo, whose death date is quickly approaching. Denton Little’s Still Not Dead is written with just as much wit as his previous novel and is wildly entertaining.

Description


"Denton and his quirky friends are laugh-out-loud funny, even as their riotous adventures raise deeper questions about science, government control, life, and death." -- SLJ

You only live onceunless 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 readers 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?

“Highly original, fantastically entertaining, and laugh-out-loud funny, Denton Little’s Deathdate is a wild romp through a night like no other.” —Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Geography of You and Me
 
“Let’s all pray the grim reaper is even half as witty (and wise) as the deadly talented Lance Rubin. Till then: skip this book at your own peril.” —Tim Federle, author of Better Nate than Ever and The Great American Whatever

“Rubin is really funny, but like John Green, he manages to be poignant. . . . In other words, it’s a keeper.” —Bustle

Praise For…


Praise for Denton Little's Still Not Dead:

"Full of humor, suspense, family drama, romance, car chases, evil government agents, and scientists, this reads almost like a movie script."-- School Library Journal

"Funny and original." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Sarcastic banter, chases, and escapes keep the pages turning." -- Booklist

"Denton was supposed to die the day before this book begins, as readers will recall from Denton Little’s Deathdate, but what he thought would be the last day of his life has turned out to be the start of a covert existence full of illicit shenanigans. The caper aspect of the first installment is heightened in this sequel, but there’s still plenty of focus on family relationships, friendships, and (often awkward) romantic entanglements." -- The Horn Book
