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 triangleas the first sex seems to have happened not with his adoring girlfriend, but with his best friends hostile sister. (Though hes not totally suresee, first hangover.)

Suddenly Dentons life is filled with mysterious questions and precious little time to find the answers.

Rubin is really funny but like John Green, he manages to be poignant at the same time. You'll laugh out loud while you read this, but you're probably going to tear up a bit too. --Bustle

The dialogue is witty and raunchy, the plot is uniquely twisted, and the ending is to die for. This book will fly off the shelves. --VOYA
