New York Times bestseller! 4 starred reviews!

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.”

I enjoyed the characters but my main issue was the Science and the Death Cast thing. A great contemporary story but just lose the science.

A good enough read, but it'd not as good as Silvera's previous work. The biggest flaw is the novel feels bloated with side characters that have nothing to do (or as nothing to) the story. If you do some editing and just skip all the chapters that aren't about the two main characters it reads well. But the main characters lack the depth of those found in More Happy Than Not and History Is All You Left Me.
