Loved reading about Lauren's story from her point of view as well as her families point of view. I did follow this news story years ago and this book gets into more detail about the accident as well as her recovery. Yes, their Christian beliefs are very evident but it's who they are and it is part of her journey through life. The only part that I found unnecessary was the part regarding the parents divorce. Yes, it was a part of Lauren's life but I feel it didn't add anything to the story.
