Nunca me abandones/Never Let Me Go is a thought-provoking dystopian novel that deals with love, coming of age, and what it means to be human. Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy attend an elite boarding school in the English coun­tryside where students are not allowed to leave and their futures are unknown. They develop a close, but complicated, friendship that turns into a love triangle. Years later, the trio reconnect, look back upon their time in school, and realize just how unique their experiences were.
