Description

Glory is a piano prodigy. After her mother died, she retreated into her music. Her father raised her with the goal of playing sold-out shows at Carnegie Hall and across the globe. Brilliant and lonely, Glory is drawn to Frank, who moves in next door.

Musical notes reveal treasured mementos and stolen secrets as Glory loses herself in Frank’s paintings and drawings. Links bring the music of their shared mix CDs to reality. Vibrant videos play the shows and clips they watch together and breathe still photos to life. Scrapbook images move as the text flows from Spanish to English. Their late-night IM conversations whisper, blinking down the screen. Frank becomes Glory’s connection to the world—and her escape from reality.

Before long, Glory is unable to play anything but the song “Chopsticks”; F and G notes moving closer together, and farther apart.

Glory disappears. But nothing is what it seems. And we must decide what is real, what is imagined, and what has been madness all along…

A breathtaking cohesion of images, songs, videos, letters, love and loss, the Chopsticks app draws on a full spectrum of media to create a fully immersive novel experience.

“…seeing deceits and red herrings laid bare in photographs and documents, rather than reading about them, makes the book’s punches hit hard.” –PW

“Spellbinding and inventive, this title will attract teens and compel them to reread and revisit each clue to the hauntingly ambiguous ending.” –SLJ Starred Review

“Eerie and edgy—and effective as Poe.” –Kirkus

Pictures are not only worth a thousand words in "Chopsticks." In hands as talented as Anthony's and Corral's, they're just as emotionally resonant. –LA Times

“A book that plays with the boundaries between novel, graphic novel, scrapbook story, and multiplatform blitz…Daring on all fronts.” –Booklist Starred Review

“Like the young artistic love it describes, Chopsticks is beautiful and strange and haunting. The story’s crooked path is made luminous by its extraordinary images. Chopsticks is like that one ex lover you never shake off—the one that was a mystery—beautifully distilled.”
--Junot Diaz, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Brief Wondorous Life of Oscar Wao

“Reading Chopsticks is like watching people kiss in the street: it’s private, it’s beautiful, it’s lonely, it’s wild, it’s secret, it’s everywhere and you can’t look away.”
--Daniel Handler, author of Why We Broke Up
