I’ve been meaning to read this book for a while, so, yesterday I finally opened the cover, and today I turned the final page.
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
Blurb: A love story with a difference – an unforgettable tale of life, loss and making each day count in the INTERNATIONAL NO. 1 BESTSELLING book of TIKTOK fame, clocking up 80 million views and counting! The First to Die at the End, the prequel to They Both Die at the End, is now available to pre-order in hardback, coming October 2022.
On September 5th, 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.
My Thoughts: When you get a call from Death-Cast you know your end is coming – there is no getting out of it, all you can do is choose how to live your End Day.
Two teenage boys – who could not be more different – get that call and, via the Last Friend app, they learn how to make the most of life, even if they only have a few hours of it left.
A gorgeous tale of love, loss, and learning to live.
And yes, I had a few tears at the end
