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.
Adam Silvera reminds us that there’s no life without death and no love without loss in this devastating yet uplifting story about two people whose lives change over the course of one unforgettable day.New York Times bestseller * 4 starred reviews * A School Library Journal Best Book of the Year * A Kirkus Best Book of the Year * A Booklist Editors' Choice of 2017 * A Bustle Best YA Novel of 2017 * A Paste Magazine Best YA Book of 2017 * A Book Riot Best Queer Book of 2017 * A Buzzfeed Best YA Book of the Year * A BookPage Best YA Book of the Year 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.
