In this world, a company called Death-cast notifies people on the day when they are going to die, and an app matches people with strangers who are also going to die that day. Two teenage boys, Rufus and Mateo, find each other through the app and spend their last day together.
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—to live a lifetime in a single day.
