For fans of John Green and Matthew Quick: get ready to die laughing.

Denton Little’s Deathdate takes place in a world exactly like our own, except that everyone knows the day on which they will die. For Denton, that’s in just two days—the day of his senior prom.

Despite his early deathdate, Denton has always wanted to live a normal life, but his final days are filled with dramatic firsts: first hangover, first sex, and first love triangle among them. The first sex seems to have happened not with his adoring girlfriend but with his best friend’s hostile sister … though he’s not totally sure (see, first hangover). His anxiety builds when he discovers a strange purple rash making its way up his body. Is this what will kill him? And then a strange man shows up at his funeral, claiming to have known Denton’s long-deceased mother and warning him to beware of suspicious government characters. Suddenly Denton’s life is filled with mysterious questions and precious little time to find the answers.

Debut author Lance Rubin takes us on a fast, furious, and outrageously funny ride through the last hours of a teenager’s life as he searches for love, meaning, answers, and, just maybe, a way to live on.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The tweaked contemporary setting, irreverent end-of-life humor, and big, existential questions make this a good pick for fans of John Corey Whaley’s Noggin."

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Quirky and highly original.”

    School Library Journal

  • “A surprisingly breezy read, both for its hilarity and for its gradually revealed secrets.”

    Horn Book

  • “The dialogue is witty and raunchy, the plot is uniquely twisted, and the ending is to die for. This book will fly off the shelves.”


  • “An utterly enjoyable, engrossing page-turner.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Narrator and first-time author Lance Rubin shines as the voice of Denton Little…Rubin’s pacing and tone capture the suspense of a mounting mystery, and his bold, idiosyncratic delivery beautifully illustrates Denton’s thoughts. His characterizations of family members and Denton’s peers add wry humor and poignancy to each scene. This is a refreshingly bizarre premise, well grounded in the realities of high school and family life, and Rubin’s dynamic, offbeat charm stands out as he performs his debut novel.”
