I don't read a book based on any age-bias - but this just made the book different from many I've read. And just as I relate wholely to many books with protags of all ages, you needn't be anywhere near 50 -- above or below -- to enjoy this book.
And when I finished the book (in less than two days) I knew exactly what the cover meant. It meant that Libby's life was overloaded. That she was overwhelmed. Thinking too much. Doing too much. And just like a cupcake loaded with burning candles - if something isn't done about that soon, whether it's blowing them out and eating the cupcake or dousing the whole thing and throwing it into the garbage (what a waste) - there needs to be action or there is going to be a big metaphorical fire.
WHAT MORE COULD YOU WISH FOR is the perfect book to take on a trip (take Kleenex too) because 1) time will fly and 2) you'll accomplish reading the whole thing, and 3) it's a feel-good book. It's also a smart book with a protagonist making difficult choices in both common and uncommon situations - and I'm partial to books like that because they make me think. What would I do?
