Waiting On Wednesday [@lancerubinparty @AAknopf]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:

DENTON LITTLE'S BIRTHDATE (Denton Little #2) by Lance Rubin

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?

published April 12th by Knopf Books for Young Readers*

I really loved Denton Little's Deathdate, what Lance Rubin imagined for that novel and its character - and how it ended. It really has me looking forward to Denton Little's Birthdate (which looks like it's going to be as funny as the first book!).

I can't wait to see what Denton learns about deathdates and how his life is different now that he doesn't have a preassigned date with death. (Not to mention the DIA chasing him and not seeing his family.)

*edit: This is either Denton Little's Birthdate and out in April or Denton Little's Still Not Dead and not out until February 2017 . . . the internet has conflicting information

That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
