Waiting on Wednesday: Denton Little’s Birthdate by Lance Rubin

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!

Denton Little's Birthdate by Lance RubinPublisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers

Author: Lance Rubin

Release date: April 12, 2016


You only live once—unless you’re Denton Little!

The good news: Denton Little 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 any time. 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?

Why I’m excited: I know this is REALLY far in advance of this book’s release date, but I wanted to talk to you guys about it. I really enjoyed Lance Rubin’s debut Denton Little’s Deathdate, the book that comes before this one. When I found out Lance was writing a sequel, I was SO PUMPED. And I still am. I can’t wait for more hilarious, ridiculous, wonderful shenanigans with Denton and his friends. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to Denton next.
