Synopsis / Plot
The novel "Never Let Me Go" offers an alternate history of how things might have been in 1980s England if children were raised at exclusive boarding schools under a shroud of mystery about their heritage. The story focuses on a 31-year-old woman named Kathy as she reflects back on her childhood friends Ruth and Tommy. She also remembers the teachers they had at Hailsham, her former school, which in some respects served as her former prison.
