Set in a slightly different version of 2017, Adam Silvera's third novel takes place over the course of one day and revolves around two teen boys, Rufus and Mateo, who find out that they're going to be dying on the same day. In Silvera's 2017, there is a service called "Death Cast" that calls you to let you know that you're going to die, though you don't get to know how or at what time. Rufus and Mateo get the call on the same day, and connect through an app called "Last Friend" that lets you connect with other dying people. Wanting to make the most of their last day, Rufus and Mateo set out to say their goodbyes, take risks, and become who they always wanted to be.  -- Kelsie (RBB Staff)

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."
