Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral

This book was a pleasant surprise. The book begins by the audience knowing that Glory, a piano prodigy, now teenager has disappeared.  The books show the events that happened before she disappeared. The most important event is when Frank moves next door. By this time Glory is nearing a meltdown . . . and that pretty much happen.

Without going too detailed into the book, what you should know about this book is it is told through photos, letters, postcards and instant messages. What was great was the random playlists that were in the book.

The authors seemed to have a real connection to the character because there was more than the regular teenage desperation to be together. It wasn’t just a  broken home, messed up friends. It seemed real and really believable. The ending caught me by surprised. Just how everything played it made it a good read.

I give this book a 8 out of 10. I would read it again.
