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 readers flash back to the events leading up to her disappearance, they see a girl on the precipice of disaster.

I've seen this book floating around the blogosphere but never really knew much about it. When I was sent a copy from Razorbill Canada, I was immediately intrigued. The Cover; it is even more stunning in person. I stood in place admiring it, I just couldn't take my eyes off of it. What is even more stunning was the unique beauty that lay between the cover...

Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral crafted together a masterpiece. A beautiful, artistic love story told through photographs. I have never had a reading experience like the one I had with Chopsticks. I was pulled into Glory's world and succumbed to her pain, her anger, her emotions. It all radiated off the pages. Everything she felt, I felt too. She invited me into her world through her photos and I felt such a personal connection with her. I read this book alone, and that was the perfect way. It was just Glory and I.

How can I sum up this beautiful novel? I can't, it has rendered me speechless. All I can do is urge you to pick it up! Curl up on your couch, dim down the lights and be enveloped by the story that is Chopsticks.

The cover is so gorgeous, I had to display it faced out on my bookshelf!
