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.

Ya know, I'm really sorry for the pain and suffering this young woman experienced - - but seriously, a book on walking into an airplane's propeller blade? For crissakes! Don't brag to the world about your stupidity already! Not worthy of a book, not worthy of the subject of any book! Next up, a guy's story on how he stuck his head into a blast furnace! With a sequel on his accident while zipping up!?!?!?

Certainly the faith and courage of Lauren and her family in response to this horrible accident are admirable. However, the book seems self-absorbed and self-indulgent. The introductory material about her young life and the marital problems of her parents is unnecessary and seems like a plug for their own book and "ministry". Lauren's details about what outfits she wore and what boys she kissed are also unnecessary and immature. Overall there are too many details, seemingly there to create enough pages to justify a book. Perhaps it would have been better for Lauren and her family to wait a couple of years to tell the story, rather than publishing it so soon after the accident. The long-term recovery and faith journey would be more inspiring than paragraph after paragraph of details about clothes, food, and lifestyle. The book, on its own, has no literary quality or value.
