About "Still Lolo"
For fashion journalist Lauren (?LoLo?) Scruggs, a short flight to look at Christmas lights turned into a nightmare when she was struck by the plane?s spinning propeller blades. As Lauren was rushed to the hospital, the world watched in shock and horror. Several major surgeries and thousands of prayers later, Lauren was still alive. But she had suffered brain trauma and 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 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. Containing exclusive photos and personal stories from Lauren and her family, Still LoLo is a compelling and fiercely beautiful account of faith, determination, and staying true to who you are?no matter what.
