Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio are complete strangers but they both have one thing in
common, they're dying today. In a world where everyone knows when they're going to die.
Rufus and Mateo want to go out with a bang. They can do that by making one last friend in
there final hours. The last friend app will help them do that. They're about to meet up and have “
one last great adventure, to live a lifetime in a single day”.

I rate this book a 3 because I really
liked the plot of the book and the overall idea but It didn't get the highest rating from me
because the writing could have been way better and I've seen a few people say that the
romance in this book felt rushed which is a statement that I disagree and agree with at the same
time, what I mean by that is that in Mateos pov we see him crushing on Rufus and falling for
him but in Rufus’s the most romantic thoughts he ever felt for Mateo were how pretty his name
was. But on the other hand these kids are dying today so they don't exactly have a lot of time to
fall in love.

In conclusion I definitely see where the author was trying to go with this book and on
some levels he succeeded but on other this book could have been so much more meaningful,
with better writing and a part of me wishes that the characters just stayed platonic friends this
book had many filler chapters and sometimes came off as borderline cringey. It's a book that I
neither loved nor hated. This book was honestly mediocre.
