⚪️Blurb: Denton Little’s Deathdate takes place in a world exactly like our own except that everyone knows the day they will die. For 17-year-old Denton Little, that’s tomorrow, 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. First love triangle (as 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.
⚪️My Review: YA is totally kicking arse this year. I have been reading amazing YA books and this is no different. Denton Little’s Deathdate is original, funny and clever. It has you hooked from the very start. I honestly couldn’t put it down I was that engrossed. You wouldn’t believe that just one day could actually be a full novel could you? It is seriously something else. I’ve never read anything like it before. And, I’ve never struggled so hard to put into words how totally amazing a book was. I’m so impressed! This is one I would most definitely recommend to all ages, all sexes, just everyone! It’s intense, passionate, insanely unique, and without a doubt the best YA book I have EVER read. I cannot wait until the next book Denton Little’s Birthdate next year. Go buy this book. Now. Go on….
