They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera


They Both Die at the End is set in a future in which humans receive an alert on the day they die, letting them know that it will be their final day. We follow Mateo and Rufus, who meet on ‘Last Friends’, an app designed to help people connect on their last day. Together Mateo and Rufus cheat death several times, and spend their final 24 hours living life to the fullest. This is an original idea for a contemporary novel, with just the slightest touch of sci-fi thrown in for good measure. This book was so unique and sweet; I spent every page falling in love with the characters, knowing full well what would happen at the end. Recommended for readers who enjoyed Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.
