After her mother died, Glory retreated into herself and her music. Her single father raised her as a piano prodigy, with a rigid schedule and the goal of playing sold-out shows across the globe. Now, as a teenager, Glory has disappeared. As we flash back to the events leading up to her disappearance, we see a girl on the precipice of disaster. Brilliant and lonely, Glory is drawn to an artistic new boy, Frank, who moves in next door. The farther she falls, the deeper she spirals into madness. Before long, Glory is unable to play anything but the song "Chopsticks."
But nothing is what it seems, and Glory's reality is not reality at all. In this stunningly moving novel told in photographs, pictures, and words, it's up to the reader to decide what is real, what is imagined, and what has been madness all along....
The idea of a story told in pictures has always seemed really interesting to me. That’s why I was so excited to read Chopsticks :)
Chopsticks tells the story of a musical prodigy and a boy from Argentina that fall in love. I loved how beautifully shown the story was. The photographs were amazing and the book actually told a great story.
I loved this book and would highly recommend it, if you love art and like being shown a story! I’d give it five out of five flowers.
