Book Review: Denton Little's Still Not Dead by Lance Rubin

Summary: 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?

Denton Little’s Still Not Dead was just what I expected- hilarious and a great return to the world of human expiration dates. I feel like this Denton book answered all the questions that left me hanging in Denton Little's Deathdate. The answers of course were not what I had suspected or how I had planned it out in my mind. 
I love the characters, Denton and Paulo. They made me reminisce about growing up in the 70's and life in the 80's, except for the death dates. I think these characters and world would be a great adaptation to film. A movie based on this series would be hilarious.
The only question that I'm left with is, will there will be a 3rd book in the series? I would love to find out what Denton is up to. Maybe a novella would be fun. I would recommend this series to anyone who who needs a good laugh and enjoys a fun, irregular world.
