37—Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Alfred A. Knopf, 2005

In this book of a dystopian today, the author introduces us to the children of Hailsham, a private school for the rearing of children who have been cloned. Their purpose in life is to grow to adulthood and become organ donations for science, for other people (it really isn't clear).

Told in the 1st person by Kathy, one of the children, it follows Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy from their youth to adulthood. We see their love and ultimately the slow recognition of their purpose in life. 

It's a horror story of science run amok and shows us an alternate universe.
