Still Lolo Book Review


 About the Book

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. (Goodreads)

My Review
Before reading this book, I had never heard of Lauren Scruggs. But I was interested in her story because I enjoy reading about people's life experiences. I really liked the first part of this book because the anticipation was high for me. I knew what was going to happen but I wanted to know details. The book is written between Lauren and her family so each chapter is written by a different person. This was helpful for the times when Lauren is in the hospital but I wish there was more from Lauren. I love how the Scruggs faith shows through. When someone tragic happens they pray and from what I could gather from the book it would seem they really did believe God could heal. For Lauren's story this is good, it reads more like a biography up until this point in her life. I like books like this so I enjoyed it. 

I rate four stars.
