About The Authors And Collaborative Writer
“Still Lolo” is a compelling and fiercely beautiful story of faith, determination, and staying true to oneself – regardless of circumstances and no matter what. The book will specifically be written for women and teen girls who have struggled with body image and insecurity as Lauren honestly shares her realized struggles related to idols, beauty, love and acceptance and how she found peace and comfort through her spiritual beliefs.” - By Dan Wooding, Founder of ASSIST Ministries.
“I first got to know Lauren after hearing about her accident and discovering she was following me on Twitter. I sent her a tweet, and we have been in touch ever since. Now the tables have turned, and I am the one following Lauren in life . . . a life that is just getting started. Her story teaches us all that there are no accidents in life. Lauren reminds us that God has a master plan for each and every one of us, and hers is to use her voice and her remarkable story to inspire and help others. Still LoLo is a beautiful read that helps us remember that sometimes what feels like the end is really just the beginning.” - Giuliana Rancic, Anchor, E! News.
"You definitely feel that Lauren has a "young" or immature voice -- there is a lot of description about people's looks, dress, etc., but she also recognizes in the end that outward appearance was something she placed too much value on. She doesn't try to make herself out to be perfect, and she lets the reader in on the struggles she endured, including lashing out at her parents during her darker times. I read this in about a day and I enjoyed it more than I expected to. There is even a good description of the accident and how it could have happened to anyone, for those who still think Lauren was just a dumb blonde who should have missed the spinning propeller." - Other retailer's reader review.
