In the future there is a service that calls you to let you know you have 24 hours to live. Matteo and Rufus meet on their end day through the last friend app.
Adam Silvera has made me cry with each and every one of his books. Two weeks later, I still broke out into tears because American Pie started playing on the radio . . . I may have traumatized my mother.
Matteo and Rufus are two very different boys. Matteo has a lot of anxiety and is scared to take any risk, Rufus is more fearless. They truly balance one another out and bring out the best of one another. It was beautiful to see their friendship flourish in such a short time span.
This book talked about death, family, and love. It was heartbreaking and almost equally hilarious. Silvera has a truly magical ability of writing on such heavy topics and making them so relatable. I related to Matteo and Rufus’ insecurities.
Silvera's books are tough to get through at times, there were many crying breaks. But once I finished the book and turned that last page, I always feel a sense of peace with his books. Bad things happen every day and to good people, but somehow his books always make me feel like it will be ok.
I gave this book an A.
I know Silvera has a new book coming out that he cowrote with Becky Albertelli and I can’t wait to read a potentially “happy” book.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
