After her mother died, Glory retreated into herself and her music. Her single father raised her as a piano prodigy, with a rigid schedule and the goal of playing sold-out shows across the globe. Now, as a teenager, Glory has disappeared. As we flash back to the events leading up to her disappearance, we see a girl on the precipice of disaster. Brilliant and lonely, Glory is drawn to an artistic new boy, Frank, who moves in next door. The farther she falls, the deeper she spirals into madness. Before long, Glory is unable to play anything but the song "Chopsticks."
But nothing is what it seems, and Glory's reality is not reality at all. In this stunningly moving novel told in photographs, pictures, and words, it's up to the reader to decide what is real, what is imagined, and what has been madness all along....

Okay, so, I finished this tonight...Within about an hour and a half or so..(had to keep stopping to talk to my kids, respond to messages, etc). It's good. I think I understand the ending and what happened. And why she is missing. I do plan on getting this book for my bookshelf as soon as I can find it & get it. Anyone who wants a quick easy "read", I suggest you pick up this book. It's so original how they tell the story through pictures, letters/postcards and a few I.M.'s. If I could find more books like this, I would definitely give them a try.
