“I’ve spent years living safely to secure a longer life, and look where that’s gotten me. I’m at the finish line but I never ran the race.”
I loved this one. Another YA, this time based in future where we’re called up in the early hours of the morning on the day we’re going to die. In this world, there’s an app called the Last Friend where you can meet up with others who are dying today (or people who volunteer to be your friend on the day you die).
Would I want to know? I don’t think so. You can sense the anxiety the boys have when faced with just crossing the road. It essentially turns your final day in a day of fear. Although they turn it around, I doubt I would have the mental strength. The whole thing is rather heart-wrenching.
But there was so much to like in this book. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who likes YA but also anyone who likes to read a book which makes you think. I confess to placing my bookmark in far too often to share a thought on death with my boyfriend.
