A stunning and unexpected tale of tragedy, survival, and true beauty.
For fashion journalist Lauren (“LoLo”) Scruggs, a short flight to look at Christmas lights turned into a nightmare when she was struck by the plane’s spinning propeller blades. As Lauren was rushed to the hospital, fighting for her life, the world watched in shock and horror. Several major surgeries and thousands of prayers later, Lauren was still alive. But she had suffered brain trauma and lost her left hand and left eye. Some thought that this would be the end of everything for her, a beautiful young woman working in an industry focused completely on appearance. They were wrong.
In Still LoLo, Lauren reveals what really happened that night, how she survived against all odds, and what her life is like today. She is unflinchingly honest in the face of difficult questions: What kind of future will I have? Will anyone be able to love me now? Where is God in all this pain? Through her story, Lauren calls us all to live a life without fear and to overcome whatever challenges threaten to limit us. Containing personal stories from Lauren and her family, Still LoLo is a compelling and fiercely beautiful account of faith, determination, and staying true to who you are - no matter what.

I love memoirs and really enjoy listening to people triumph over daunting odds. The "teaser" for this book tells about the moments leading up to Lolo's accident and then leaves you wanting more and I was excited to hear her story. I am not against religion but I am not Christian and would prefer not to listen to Christian inspirational books. After about 2 chapters in which every person talks about Jesus Christ, religion and going back to her parents religious history and how they met I knew this wasn't the book for me. I know there is an amazing story and I really enjoy her blog but it was too much religion for me. I hope this review doesn't offend anyone and I respect everyone's religion and if you are a Christian or very religious you would probably really enjoy this book.
