Becoming Mona Lisa is a simple tale of discovery. Mona Lisa comes to a crossroads, a journey I think a lot of us can relate to, she needs to decide which path her life should go: divorce or loneliness. Deciding to save her marriage, and Aunt Ida’s trees her husband, brother in law and Mona Lisa embark on a hilarious endeavor to save thousands of crows (my daughter would totally do this) but ends up looking at her husband in a new light. Becoming Mona Lisa is an endearing love story surprisingly enough, my favorite part was the irreverent, sarcastic wit. Normally I wouldn’t be drawn to this type of story but I think the humor and well written characters hooked me. Great rainy day read.
