After Glory’s mother died, the young piano prodigy retreated into her music.  Now Glory is a big star, well known for incorporating hip modern hits into the classical pieces she plays at Carnegie Hall and other grand venues around the world.  But everything changes when Francisco moves in next door to Glory and her father.  Francisco and Glory fall deeply in love as they bond over mix-CDs, late-night IM conversations, and art.  But before long, Glory finds that she is unable to play anything but the song “Chopsticks,” with the F and G notes starting out together, moving apart, and coming together again.  Her obsession with “Chopsticks” completely takes over her life, until she is admitted to the Golden Hands Rest Facility for Child Prodigies.  Then, suddenly, Glory disappears.  This unique “picto-novel” portrays Glory and Francisco’s beautiful love story through photographs, drawings, collages, and links.  You will want to read it again and again to find every clue and decide for yourself how the story really ends.  Prepare yourself for a completely new reading experience when you pick up Chopsticks!
