Finished Born to Rock and it was a light-hearted, enjoyable read. Very far-fetched, but lots of fun. It reminded me of Korman's Son of the Mob books, which have the same tone, and are easy to recommend to boys, especially.
I know, I said I was going to read an adult book -- but I found this book, The Smile, by Donna Jo Napoli, and it had the Mona Lisa on the front, and I just had to find out what it was about! (Isn't that cover irresistible!)
