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.”
Plus don't miss The First to Die at the End: #1 New York Times bestselling author Adam Silvera returns to the universe of international phenomenon They Both Die at the End in this prequel. New star-crossed lovers are put to the test on the first day of Death-Cast’s fateful calls.
Soon after Rufus Emeterio, 17, and Mateo Torrez, 18, receive midnight phone calls from Death-Cast, a service that notifies those with less than 24 hours to live, the New York City teenagers connect via the Last Friend app and decide to spend their final hours together. Both have been dealt harsh hands even before getting the call: Mateo's mother died giving birth to him and his father's in a coma. Rufus is the only survivor of a car crash that killed his entire family. Over the course of an eventful day, these thoughtful young men speak honestly and movingly about their fate, their anger at its unfairness, and what it means to be alive, until their budding friendship organically turns into something more. Each tells his part of the story in alternating, time-stamped chapters. Other voices mostly friends from Rufus's foster home and people they encounter fill out the narrative, revealing the influence both boys have had on those around them. It hardly matters that the title telegraphs the ending; it's still heartbreaking when it arrives. Ages 14 up.
Wenn ihr Lust habt euch wie ich die Augen auszuheulen, dann kauft euch dieses Buch. Das Ende hat mich richtig zum heulen gebracht. Aber man hat gemerkt, dass dem Autoren zu dem Zeitpunkt die Ideen etwas ausgegangen sind. Tolles Buch!👍✨
Die Idee gibt mir countdown vibes. Aber spannender, da das System auch anders aufgebaut ist & man ziemlich viel über die beiden Jung’s erfährt.
Für den Preis lohnt sich es. :)
If u like crying sessions at 2am this is your book!
Disclaimer! This review contains spoilers.
I’ve been really sceptic about this book since the title presumably reveals the end of this book. And even though it actually does reveal the end of it, this book didn’t disappoint me in any possible way.
A love story of two boys who are faced with their non changeable destiny of dying - sounds really basic at the beginning. However the author doesn’t disappoint in making this whole thing feel incredibly tragic.
It’s a system or some supernatural forecast these boys are aware of and they don’t seem to try to change it even though they hope death won’t come for them.
It’s a devastating story that should remind you of living your life to the fullest and never waste a second because every second could be your last.
