Still Lolo By Lauren Scruggs

In December 2011, Lauren (“LoLo”) Scruggs, a 23-year-old fashion journalist, suffered a sudden injury that made headlines around the world. She had been on a short flight to look at Christmas lights and, upon exiting the small plane, was hit by the still-moving propeller blade. A frantic 911 call, several major surgeries, and thousands of prayers later: Lauren lived. But she lost her left hand and left eye. And she had to face some incredibly difficult questions: What kind of future will I have? Where is God in all this pain? Will anyone ever be able to love me now? In Still LoLo, Lauren speaks out for the first time since her accident. She and her family reveal what really happened that night, what Lauren’s life is like today, what got them through their journey toward healing, and how they conquered all odds to persevere as a family. It’s a compelling and fiercely beautiful story of faith, determination, and staying true to who you are—no matter what.
It's such a great but sad story at the same time. I don't remember hearing about this through the news or anything, but I enjoyed hearing Laurens story of tragedy and triump and how she still kept her faith in God. I enjoyed how the story was told from several points of view, her parents for example give their accounts and how they were feeling at different points in their lives. I like how the book was honest, even though it wasn't all sunshine and roses, it let's the reader pause and reflect how things are not always what they seem, like the marriage of the parents for example. I think this story is one of triumph over tragedy. There is also a foreword by Bethany Hamilton, the lady who was injured by a shark. I enjoyed this true story and would reccomend. Here is a link to first chapter of the book: http://mediacenter.tyndale.com/downloads/press_kits/StillLoloCh1.pdf
I recieved this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review
