This pictorial book demands repeat perusals to pick up nuances missed the first time. Photos, images and collages illustrate the blossoming romance of a piano prodigy and her new next-door neighbor. The ache of their young love and separation when she tours in Europe is palpable and believable. But Glory's downward spiral hints at something darker, and their love may not be what you think. There's a "Twin Peaks" aura about Chopsticks that won't provide definitive answers but will keep readers wondering and speculating. Sexy, mysterious, compelling. ( )

I loved this book! It is a nearly wordless story captured in photographic images that includes letters and instant messages. It is captivating and emotional and tells a very specific story of a piano prodigy, Glory, finding her way with life and love. The story leaves the reader wondering if love can overcome or if Glory is fighting madness. This story deserves a re-read and a look at all the small details. It is quite exquisite. ( )

Glory is a piano prodigy who retreats into her music when her mother dies until she meets Frank, the "bad boy" artist who moves in next door. The entire story is told through pictures, newspaper articles, play lists and other ephemera. I really like how the story is told through things and you could easily read this multiple times and see many different things. Wish I had remembered to download the app and fool around with it. ( )
