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.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
