Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—In this sequel to Denton Little's Deathdate, Denton is still alive, one day after he was supposed to have died. Even more confusing, he wakes to find his mother, who he thought had died while giving birth to him. At first, he thinks that they are both ghosts, or that she is leading him up the stairs to heaven—and a very ugly heaven at that. Then Denton's mother explains that she was part of a team that developed a virus that could counteract assigned deathdates and she had injected herself with it while she was pregnant with him. Beating his deathdate does not live up to the "wonderfulness" that Denton expects, though. He is virtually a prisoner in his mother's apartment while she and her colleagues run tests on him, and he's barred from using social media and seeing his friends. On top of that, the DIA (Death Investigation Agency) is after him, and his best friend Paolo's deathdate is coming soon. Can he help? Full of humor, suspense, family drama, romance, car chases, evil government agents, and scientists, this reads almost like a movie script. Denton and his quirky friends are laugh-out-loud funny, even as their riotous adventures raise deeper questions about science, government control, life, and death. While the book can be read as a stand-alone, those who are familiar with the first title will have a greater understanding of the plot. VERDICT The humor, strong characters, and thoughtful themes make this a strong choice for a wide audience.—Janet Hilbun, University of North Texas, Denton

Review

Praise for Denton Little's Still Not Dead:

"Full of humor, suspense, family drama, romance, car chases, evil government agents, and scientists, this reads almost like a movie script."-- School Library Journal

"Funny and original." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Sarcastic banter, chases, and escapes keep the pages turning." -- Booklist

"Denton was supposed to die the day before this book begins, as readers will recall from Denton Little’s Deathdate, but what he thought would be the last day of his life has turned out to be the start of a covert existence full of illicit shenanigans. The caper aspect of the first installment is heightened in this sequel, but there’s still plenty of focus on family relationships, friendships, and (often awkward) romantic entanglements." -- The Horn Book

Praise for Denton Little’s Deathdate:

 
“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
 
“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 Better Nate than Ever and The Great American Whatever
