If you knew you were going to die in the next 24 hours, how would you spend your last day? Teenagers Mateo and Rufus get a call from Death Cast and know their time is almost up. They meet each other through a “last friend” app and help one another make the most of the time they have left. As a middle-aged woman, I am not the target audience for this YA novel and so I didn’t necessarily relate to the life stories of the two main characters, but I still found it a compelling and thought provoking read. Interwoven with the story of the main characters, the author paints a captivating picture of how society might change as a result of the ability to forecast death, and reminds us that a long life is never a guarantee. The audiobook has multiple voice actors portraying the different characters which helps bring the book to life.
