  • “In this dystopian world, Death-Cast notifies those who have only a day to live. Mateo and Rufus are two teens who get that early morning call. Michael Crouch and Robbie Daymond narrate first-person chapters that recount their feelings upon receiving the fateful news. Crouch animates Mateo…[and] Daymond delivers seventeen-year-old Rufus’ sarcasm, bitterness, and fatalism…Bahni Turpin narrates short passages of third-person exposition that gives more context to Mateo and Rufus’ world.”
