WINNER of the ILA Young Adult Book Award!

“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 The Great American Whatever

“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

Denton Little’s Deathdate is hilarious, thought-provoking, irreverent, unforgettable. . . . Live your own death, Dent. We love you.” –Catherine Gilbert Murdock, author of Dairy Queen

“Rubin is really funny but like John Green, he manages to be poignant at the same time. You’ll laugh out loud while you read this, but you’re probably going to tear up a bit too.” —Bustle

“Quirky and highly original.” —School Library Journal

“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.”–VOYA

“An utterly enjoyable, engrossing page-turner.” — Bulletin
“A surprisingly breezy read, both for its hilarity and for its gradually revealed secrets.” — The Horn Book Magazine
“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
