Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy are best friends who grow up together in the isolated boarding school called Hailsham, with a chilling secret. As children, Kathy is secretly in love with Tommy. Then she sees her best friend Ruth holding Tommy's hand, and is devastated. As adolescents, Tommy and Kathy form a deep connection, only to have Ruth shove them apart with her own romantic demands. As they prepare to leave the school, they learn of their true purpose: each is a clone that will later have their organs harvested for medical purposes. Kathy takes on the role of "Carer," dedicating herself to looking after those being slowly dissected, and eventually Tommy and Ruth prepare to make their first "donations." As the years pass, the group grows apart, before finally reuniting just as both Tommy and Ruth are about to "complete."

Never let me go by Kazuo Ishiguro( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human. Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it. Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it's only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they always knew they would) that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is
