Book Review - STILL LOLO

The book Still Lolo:  A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family's Journey of Hopeis written by Lauren Scruggs and the Scruggs Family with Marcus Brotherton.  I think most of us remember hearing about Lauren Scruggs who walked into a plane propeller and lost sight in one eye as a result.  At the time that I heard about the accident in the news, I wondered how the accident could have happened.  This book explains that and also how Lauren and her family got through the healing and recovery process.

Not only is Lauren's background interesting, but her parents' story is very interesting also.  Her parents had married, had two children (Lauren and her sister) and then divorced.  Both parents eventually put Christ in their lives, then remarried several years after the divorce.  The family turned to their faith after Lauren's accident to get them through the accident and recovery. 

I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone.  The book is very inspiring and also reinforces that God is not concerned about outward appearances, but about what is in our heart.

Disclosure:  I received this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own.
