Giveaway: Chopsticks: A Novel by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral

Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral is a 21st-century, multimedia experience. The storyline depends on print, websites, social media, videos, phone and tablet apps, and playlists to tell the story of piano prodigy Glory Fleming.

Chopsticks is a mystery and a love story. Here's the publisher's summary:
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....
To figure out what happened to Glory and to discover where she is, you must search for clues in the visuals in the book, in the songs, and in the companion videos and website. Doesn't it sound like fun? Take a look at a sample video:

Be sure to check out the Chopsticks Tumblr site, where you'll find more visuals and more information. If you have iProducts (phone, pad) you can access the apps through iTunes or the through whatever source you use to buy your apps.

I thought this was a fun, clever book. However, I don't think I would have quite figured everything out if the rep for Penguin hadn't given me a head's up! That was my only concern for this book which is for the YA crowd. My daughter had no idea what was going on. But it does invite repeat readings!

I have this one, and I need to make time for it. Sandy read it in the space of a few hours, and I know that I would also blow through it. I kind of already know the twist at the end, but I would still love to take the journey and find out how it happens! Great review and giveaway today!

I would love to win a copy of this. My daughter and I would both enjoy it!
What a clever idea!

This sounds like a fun read! I am very intrigued, a mystery, my favorite! Thanks for the chance at it Beth!

I agree with Sandy: this is definitely a book that you want to re-read. I understood it more the second time around.

Sounds like a fun book. I like the idea. Thanks for the giveaway.

I have never heard of anything like this before and I am desperate to experience it. If I don't win, I am going to buy this for sure.

Thanks for the great giveaway.

Yay! I won! Thank you so much!
I can't wait to read it, and use the app!!
