100 Books in 2013: Chopsticks

Book 6: Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral

This was an interesting novel.  Like a graphic novel, the story unfolds through photographs, pictures, documents, texts, and program / playbills.  It's the story of Glory, a teenage pianist prodigy, who falls in love with her neighbor, but she is on the verge of a breakdown due to the constant push by her father to perform.  The reader is left to discern what is real, what is imagined, and what happens to Glory.
