Staff Reviews

Adam Silvera teaches us to live life to the fullest, for Rufus and Mateo do just that as they experience their last day alive. In this society, people know when they are going to die, but they don't know how or when, just that they have at most 24 hours to live. This book was enlightening, with a dark, witty humor that was a joy to read!

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--to live a lifetime in a single day.

In the tradition of Before I Fall and If I Stay, They Both Die at the End is a tour de force from acclaimed author Adam Silvera, whose debut, More Happy Than Not, the New York Times called "profound."
