In November 2014, 16-year-old Kilee Brookbank’s home exploded in a fire that burned 45 percent of her body and sent her to the brink of death. (Her dog Digger woke Kilee after she was knocked unconscious, and she was able to escape.) Kilee spent 38 days in Shriners Hospital for Children-Cincinnati, recovering from second- and third-degree burns and enduring multiple surgeries and skin grafts.

Kilee, now 18, and her mother, Lori Highlander, have chronicled their parallel experiences of that unforgettable day, the aftermath and healing in the book Beautiful Scars.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
“It took me many years—decades even—to embrace my fire, my scars, my story, my gifts—the way that Kilee has naturally done in just a few short years. Beautiful Scars is a reminder that we don’t always get to choose the path we walk in life, but we can always choose the manner in which we walk it.”
—John O’Leary, inspirational speaker and bestselling author of 
ON FIRE: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life




In a fairytale twist, Kilee was named prom queen this past May (see the story in Seventeen). She has graduated from high school and will be attending Xavier University in Cincinnati this fall.








To help other families of burn survivors, Kilee and her family have created the
hosting events to raise money for Shriners Hospitals for Children - Cincinnati. 
A portion of the proceeds from Beautiful Scars also will benefit Shriners’ Cincinnati facility.
