Book Review: Still Lolo

Oddly enough, I started reading the account of Lauren Scruggs on the anniversary of her horrific accident involving a small aircraft propeller blade.  I remembered hearing about the accident in the news last year, but that was about it.  So, I was looking forward to hearing her side of the story. book is a compilation of memories from not only Lauren's viewpoint, but that of her mother, father and twin sister.  Because of that I think you get the most complete story.  For instance, toward the beginning of the book, Lauren's father describes his reaction to first hearing about his daughter's accident.  His story is heart wrenching and brought me to tears.  I actually had to put the book down because it was so painful to read.

While others may not agree, I felt there was some information that left me confused as to why it was included, unless it was to show that this seemingly perfect family wasn't perfect at all.  Because of that as well as the accounts of the accident itself, I would not recommend this for a younger reader.

All in all, "Still Lolo" was incredibly inspiring.  Lauren Scruggs is a remarkable, resilient young woman who is a strong witness for her faith.
