Chopsticks, by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral

Haunting and absorbing YA graphic. Piano prodigy Glory Fleming is missing- but the events that lead up to her dissapearance are as unclear as her fate. Passionate romance, intense pressure, and  a serious obsession with playing the childrens' waltz Chopsticks add up to a dizzying, twisting graphic novel that I want to read over and over. This was one of those books where the format is so perfect for the story, and the questions that linger after the last page just make you want to start over again, focusing on every single perfectly chosen image and painting.
