Looking to be inspired to live out your dreams? Take a read!

We all want to believe that we would have the courage to survive a terrible accident; however, Lauren has the scars and story to prove she did. Still Lolo is a story of tragedy but also of triumph and never losing sight of your dreams.

Hmm…Still LoLo is difficult to rate. The story of the accident I learned about on television and other media is both terrifying and inspirational. Rate: A+. The book, on the other hand, feels like it only touches the surface of the story. I feel the shell of the story is scraped but the deepness of the tragedy and recovery wasn’t reached.  There is too much preliminary ‘stuff’ such as outer beauty, fashion, etc., and not enough of the inner pain and strength that could’ve made this story much more inspirational than it did. 

This book could’ve provided an exceptional story but, to me, it is mediocre. Rate: C

    This was a pretty good book. A horrible tragedy that this woman

    This was a pretty good book. A horrible tragedy that this woman endured. Everyone I tell this story to seems to have heard of this woman and her getting her hand and eye cut off by a propeller. But I had never heard the story before I read the book. And I had only ever heard of the book as it is on the Tyndale house summer reading program. It is refreshing to hear a Christian that goes through a tragedy and gets through it, and knows the only way they got through it is by the grace of God. This is one of those stories. There has been a big misconception that Lauren was a model prior to this accident. She was not, and the book confirms that. I thought the book deserves more than a three star, but less than a four. And yes, I would recommend it.

    Read as part of the Tyndale House summer reading program and it

    Read as part of the Tyndale House summer reading program and it was good. I hadn't heard of Lauren Scruggs until I saw this on the reading list. It's a great story of a girl who overcomes a terrible accident and is an inspiration to others.
