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....
I borrowed this book from my library, this does not influence my review.
I think there’s really only one sentence needed to get you to read this book: Chopsticks is told entirely through pictures. That’s right, the whole story is told through beautiful photography and minimal text.
In the true spirit of Chopsticks, a picture says a thousand words so I’m just going to include everything I feel towards this book. Things you should know: it’s magical, unique, so well-written and YOU SHOULD READ IT!
The consensus? If you’re looking for a wonderfully unique and feelsy book, Chopstick is right for you!
