Glory is a young piano prodigy. Frank is the boy who moves in next door. Over the years, their friendship blossoms into an undeniable romance. As Glory descends from stunning piano prodigy into a kind of madness, Frank’s love becomes more and more unshakable. They both become hopelessly fixated on the song “Chopsticks”.

Part love story, part mystery, part visual collage, this novel is told through images as much as it’s told through words. Ultimately the reader must decipher what is real, what is imagined, and what has been madness all along.

Richly imagined by author Jessica Anthony and hauntingly designed by Rodrigo Corral, Chopsticks will rivet teens and adults alike on numerous platforms, including a gorgeous book and paid app for the iPhone and iPad, with many additional features.


I was a big fan of how images were used to tell the story in Every You, Every Me by David Levithan (Photographs by Jonathan Farmer) so I am extremely curious to see how this will look!
