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, 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. 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 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. Containing exclusive photos and 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.
A touching and inspiring story of a young womanâ€™s journey from the door of death to the struggle to survive against all odds.
This story spoke to me in so many different ways. It told me that no matter how we look on the outside, scars, missing limbs, etc. that God loves us for what we are on the inside.
If we donâ€™t think of whatâ€™s wrong on the outside, God can use us in mighty ways, way beyond we can ever imagine,
I sincerely hope that you decide to read Still Lolo, the story of Lauren Scruggs and her familyâ€™s journey.

When I asked to review this book I didn't realize that this book was about Lauren, the young woman who was hit by a plane propeller.
I watched Katie Couric 2 days before I got this book and was blessed by her saying "God" so many times in her story...
This book is the true story of what she and her family went through during a very sad time in her life.
She says in the first chapter when she was in the plane she felt uneasy and fearful....but said this prayer "Whatever happens, God, my life is in Your Hands." Not knowing that it would be this very scary and painful trial in her life but, she knew she was in HIS hands.
Lauren and her family share their very personal and honest lives as they go through the surgeries,rehabilitation's and more.
They have their highs and lows but always know Who to go to for help, through prayer to God our Creator.
They take you step by step of what they really thought and made me feel like I know them personally.
I read this book in two days i could not put it down!!!
What a wonderful book....I HIGHLY recommend this book to ALL teenagers and parents and even those who have no children...it is VERY INSPIRING and a blessing to read and share with others to read.
I pray that God, our Father will continue to use Lauren and her family to further HIS Glory, Honor and Praise. In Jesus Matchless Name AMEN

My Dad gave me this book as a Christmas present last year, after I heard about Lauren's story online. I finished the book in a couple of days, I just couldn't put the book down! I was so captivated by Lauren's faith and the strength of her and her family. I was happy to lend the book to a friend so she could read Lauren's story too. I believe everyone will be inspired by 'Still Lolo'
