A friend alerted me to pray when LoLo's accident happened, and I did for days. Thrilled to hear more of the story. Her recovery is amazing - totally God's answer to many prayers.
Loved the format of the book which told the story sequentially, using the voices of various family members. Such a traumatic event is, of course, a huge family affair, and it was good to see the way God used each one's periods of being "up" to encourage the rest of the family in their "downs" over the terribly difficult circumstances as they changed.
Also a great manual on how to be a godly friend walking alongside our brothers and sisters as they struggle.
Each one shared enough of his own struggles to be truthful, not a sugar-coating.
Would be a terrific gift to others facing traumatic times...so long as we make it clear everyone has the right to process grief in his own way, on his own timetable. I think grief is cyclical, not linear, and we revisit the same emotions over and over again, but as this book and others point out, GOD IS PRESENT IN THEM ALL.

The true story of Lauren being hit by a propeller blade and losing her one eye and hand. I was encouraged by her determination to get up and get moving, but also by her sharing the real struggles of learning to accept the loss of her hand and to be able to go out and face the public once again. That wasn't easy for her--she didn't like the prostheses.
I also liked how it gave the story of her life--it told how her mom and dad had divorced and then got back together again after they had both become Christians. Giving up high-paying jobs in the corporate world to work as marriage counselors takes a commitment as well. It chronicles her failures and her successes, which makes her story more palatable rather than just being about her accident and how wonderfully she overcame it, which can be discouraging for those who struggle through life. I would recommend this book to others. Very easy to read.

I read this book because it was on the Tyndale's summer reading list. I thought her story was interesting and I was certainly fascinated that her parents remarried after 7 years of being divorced. I guess if I had been following Lauren before the accident this book would have been even better because it gives details of her life before the accident and how the accident impacted her life and details about the recovery. It was all new to me since I'd never heard of her before.

Still Lolo is written by Lauren Scruggs as well as her family. The subtitle is a spinning propeller, a horrific accident, and a family's journey of hope. Lauren Scruggs was a fashion journalist when a simple air plane ride to see the cities Christmas lights turned into an accident that would changer he life. Left without an eye and a hand in addition to needing brain surgery and a multitude of other things, it is a miracle she survived. This is the story has told through the views of Lauren, her mother, her father, and her twin sister. Not only is this a story of the accident but a story of her life which has God's grace and hope written all over it.
This book was great. I hadn't heard about this even though it received major television news coverage. (maybe because we don't have tv LOL) I loved how it was written from different perspectives. For someone who is worried about non-fiction books this one was great! I enjoyed reading it and it truly encourages you in your faith. Plus I will now be praying for the Scruggs family as they continue to find ways to pay for all the medical bills from this horrific accident. This is a must read!

This one made me cry. Lauren tells of her journey full of pain and miracles, and the sister, mother and father express how they made it through. It is enlightening in more than one way. Her father works out his grief partly by visiting the accident site, and the diagram and his research were eye-opening. Many aspects of the accident and the road to recovery are explained so well that it kept my interest to the end. These are brave and open people to share their lives this way. I did not expect such a beautiful testimony of strength. This whole family inspired me with their steadfast faith and love. In fact, their example shames me because I have not followed my beliefs as closely. It is a lovely expression of grace and helps me resolve to renew my faith. Difficult issues arise but restoration is ultimately received. Oh, yes, and the photos in the paperback are absolutely beautiful and precious!
