“Having the chance to say good-bye before you die is an incredible opportunity, but isn’t that time better spent actually living?”

Mateo and Rufus both receive a call telling them they only have twenty-four hours left to live. Of course everyone knows what a call from Death-cast means. The call is pretty straight-forward. They know they’re going to die. Mateo and Rufus use an app to find someone to share their last day with end up matching. The two spend their last hours trying to live life to fullest and maybe find love before the clock runs out. Adam Silvera gives us a story of life, love and loss that’ll tug at every heart-string.
