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. The good news: There’s an app for that. It’s called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure and to live a lifetime in a single day.

Here lies Mateo, he lived for everyone

 

There’s one song that I kept hearing in my head as I read certain parts of this book: Heaven by Beyonce. That is one of the most heartwrenching songs that she’s ever sung and it’s bittersweet tone works so well with Rufus and Mateo’s stories.

 

We laughed at the darkness,

so scared that we lost it,

we stood on the ceilings,

you showed me love was all you needed

Heaven couldn’t wait for you 

No heaven couldn’t wait for you

So go on, go home
