Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Never Let Me Go is narrated by a 31-year old woman named Kathy. She's remembering her days at Hailsham, a boarding school where creativity and health were emphasized. None of the children have parents or surnames. She has rekindled friendships with Ruth and Tommy, friends from her Hailsham days. The three of them find they don't fit into society, that they're not been prepared for a normal life. The children of Hailsham are all clones, bred and raised solely to be organ donors once they're adults. Kathy and Ruth both fight over Tommy's attention, and he has fits of temper. The three of them, though, agree to hold onto each other forever, unsure of the future that awaits them. Kazuo Ishiguro's novel has received high praise with the Guardian saying, "This extraordinary and, in the end, rather frighteningly clever novel isn't about cloning, or being a clone, at all. It's about why we don't explode, why we don't just wake up one day and go sobbing and crying down the street, kicking everything to pieces out of the raw, infuriating, completely personal sense of our lives never having been what they could have been."
