This book has an engaging format--there is scant text heavily supported by photographs, drawings, IM dialog, letters, etc. After her mother's death, a teenage concert pianist is coached to fame by her father. As she begins to feel isolated, she develops a relationship with a young man from Argentina. Occasional letters from the boy's private school shows how, in spite of his success in art class, he is struggling to fit in. As the story progresses, the girl's sanity seems to unravel and the reader becomes increasingly confused as to what is real and what is imagined. I won't reveal my take on the story, because it is as much a mystery for the reader as for the characters. The key to understanding this novel (and what makes this novel such a fun read) is in careful examination of the pictures.
