Denton Little wusste von klein auf, dass er mit 17 Jahren sterben wird. Doch wie sich herausstellte, wusste Denton uberhaupt nichts. Nicht nur ist er nach seinem Todestag noch immer quicklebendig, plotzlich will ihn auch noch die Regierung in die Finger kriegen - denn eigentlich stirbt man, wenn man zu sterben hat. Als ware das nicht schon durchgeknallt genug, taucht obendrein Dentons totgeglaubte Mutter auf und behauptet, sie habe sein illegales Uberleben von langer Hand geplant, damit er zur zentralen Figur ihrer Untergrundbewegung werden kann. Darauf hat Denton jedoch gar keine Lust. Stattdessen macht er sich auf die Suche nach seinem besten Freund Paolo, den er vor seinem baldigen Ableben retten will. Verfolgungsjagden, Beziehungschaos, Familiengeheimnisse und zu viel Marihuana erwarten Denton auf seinem Weg, sowie ganz nebenbei die zentralen Fragen des Lebens.

Living sucks when you have to pretend to be dead. SPOLER ALERT: Denton didnt die. But as the only person in the world, apparently, not to have kicked it on his deathdate, there are lots of people after him. And some of those people are not good people. And some of them would rather just kill him than have to deal with it. And also his Mums involved. Even though he thought she was dead too. Its all pretty confusing. Lance Rubins incredible sense of humour shines through once again in this laugh-out-loud sequel to DENTON LITTLES DEATHDATE. An outrageously funny read, perfect for fans of Judd Apatow, The Big Bang Theory and John Green.

Once Upon a Bookcase Nothing short of incredible Diva Booknerd This page-turner sparkles with hilarious dialogue, deadpan drollness, roller-coaster plot twists, and wryly presented coming-of-age revelations School Libraries Journal

Den Tag des eigenen Todes zu kennen - das ist fur Denton ganz normal. Denn inzwischen kann die Wissenschaft anhand bestimmter Tests den Todeszeitpunkt aus dem eigenen Blut herauslesen. Bereits im Kindesalter wurde Denton bescheinigt, dass er im Alter von 17 Jahren an einem bestimmten Datum sterben wird - und dieser Tag ist morgen. Traditionell tun die Menschen in den Tagen vor ihrem Ableben, der sog. Death Week, alles, was sie schon immer tun wollten. Nun, Denton erwacht im Bett eines Madchens, das aber defitiniv nicht seine Freundin ist. Eigentlich wollte er nicht unbedingt jetzt in Streit mit Taryn geraten - schlielich ist fur den Nachmittag vorab seine Beerdigungszeremonie angesetzt, bei der sich Familie und Freunde von ihm verabschieden. Einzig auf welche Weise Denton den Tod finden wird, wei er noch nicht. Und als er anynome Drohbriefe erhalt ("e;Du wirst sterben"e; - nun ja, so eine Drohung einen Tag vor seinem Tod erschreckt ihn relativ wenig) und ein mysterioser Fleck auf seiner Haut erscheint, findet er nach und nach heraus, dass etwas an seinem vorhergesagten Tod ganz und gar nicht stimmt. Doch hat er genug Zeit, herauszufinden, was?

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.
