Never Let Me Go

Never Let Me Go

Kathy, Ruth and Tommy were pupils at Hailsham – an idyllic establishment situated deep in the English countryside. The children were sheltered entirely from the outside world and brought up to believe they were special. But why were they really there?

Now thirty-one, Kathy looks back on the past and narrates the haunting story of how she and her two friends slowly came to confront the truth about their seemingly happy childhoods – and about their futures.
