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. [Official Book Description]

This book is a testament to turning tests into testimonies. A fashion journalist trying to make it in a outward focused world has overcome a terrible accident and bounced back to be successful while pursuing her very own passions. This book is a great read for young women looking to answer questions of why God has put them where they are in life. Or even for question much deeper such as self-evaluation and identity issues.
The book gives a firsthand account of the night with the plane. Some complain that the story does not go in detail enough with the events following up, but Lauren’s own commentary is encouraging and is a wonderful example of looking at the big picture in life – which is God’s story and not your own story. If you are looking for an intense story with an encouraging, God-centered message, than this is a good book for you to pick up.
