On September 5, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: They’re going to die today.
Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they’re both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure and to live a lifetime in a single day.
I should’ve known what I was getting into with this book. I mean, with a title like They Both Die at the End, what else can you expect but to be thrown right into Heartbreak Central? As it turns out, however, there’s quite a little bit more in the story rather than tears and sadness — I think it’s what Adam Silvera does best. 😉
