After finishing Denton Little’s Deathdate last year, I could not WAIT to get my hands on the sequel to find out what happens to Denton and his friends. I begged our local library to order the book and once it came in, I was the first to get to read it. It did not disappoint.

The story picks up where the first book ends, with Denton walking into his mom’s apartment. From there, it takes the twists and turns you might expect when running from the law and trying to make sure that his identity is kept secret. All of the characters from the first book that I loved are back in this one. Of course Denton is now trying to help Pablo surpass his deathdate and continue living, the two of them, on the run or not, as all best friends want to.

The story tied up a lot of loose ends from the first book, leaving only a couple open in the second one. The biggest one being when Denton will die now that he’s past his original deathdate. I haven’t been able to find information about a third book, but I’m hoping the series continues with more grand adventures for Denton and Pablo.

Description from GoodReads.

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?
