They Both Die at the End takes place in a world where a service informs people each morning if it will be their last day on Earth. These doomed people don't know how or when in the day they will die, but the system is never wrong. Two teenage boys connect with each other through a platform for those facing their final hours. Although you know that their perfect day and their newfound friendship will not last, you will spend the whole book, as I did, hoping they somehow make it anyway. Adam Silvera is known for his heart-wrenching portrayals of relationships, and this book is no different. It may not have a traditionally happy ending, but it's no less uplifting for that fact, as it portrays two boys living their lives to the fullest on borrowed time.
Silvera's heartbreaking but hopeful instant "New York Times" is now in paperback. In a world where people receive a phone call on the day they're going to die, Rufus and Mateo meet through an app and come up with a perfect plan to live their last hours to the fullest.
