Cloned children are raised at private "schools" with the expressed purpose of using them for organ donation. This process is seen through the experience of Kathy, who is now 31, and her schoolmates.
I thought the premise was fascinating, but felt that some details of the lives of the kids slowed the story down.
The story takes place in England. I can't help but think if it had taken place in the U.S., it would have been very controversial, complete with demonstrations and a lot more action!

Lisa I have never seen "The Island," but according to what I could find on the internet, it is different. I thought Never Let Me Go should be more like that movie. I know I would try to run away!
