“If you knew you were going to die within 24 hours, how would you spend your last day? Rufus and Matteo are 17 and 18 years old and healthy—but death does not discriminate. On the same day, they both receive calls from Deathcast, a service that lets you know it is your last day on Earth. Starting as strangers, they find each other through an app called ‘Last Friend,’ where you can find a person to spend your last day with. Adam Silvera skillfully writes with dark humor and introspection that will make you think about what you are truly living for.”
— Carissa Unite, Oblong Books and Music, Millerton, NY

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.
