Never Let Me Go
by Kazuo Ishiguro

This is an engaging coming-of-age story. Its focus is on friendship and self-definition and includes elements of excitement and mystery. The narrative is beautifully spun and mysterious; we realize, often before the characters themselves, of their required contributions to the larger social order.
