I remember hearing the story of Lauren Scruggs on the news initially after she was involved in the accident which took her arm and eye, but I did not know the whole story and the great role that her faith played in her life and her reaction to the accident. In Still Lolo: A spinning propeller, a horrific accident, and a family’s journey of hope I heard the whole story of not only the accident, but also the recovery Lauren went through.
The terrible accident happened when Lauren went for a flight with a friend who was a pilot in December of 2011; during the flight she had a premonition that something was going to go wrong. When they landed safely, Lauren was relieved, but she still felt that something was not right. As she was leaving the plane, she stepped onto the propeller which caused the terrible accident most of America heard about. In addition to telling about Lauren’s accident and recovery, her childhood and family matters are detailed in the book.
Each chapter in this book is told through the perspective of a different family member, and I liked the way this allowed me to see how they experienced the different stages in their life and Lauren’s recovery. I was able to read this book in the span of a few days, and I really liked that the book was written in a way that most ages would be able to enjoy the book. I’ll definitely be giving this book to my teenage sister to read!!
