I Swear by Lane Davis

Lane Davis’ book, I Swear, is a work of fiction. This novel tells the story of a seventeen year old girl named Leslie who is pushed to suicide after relentless bullying from peers. 

I SwearThis story then goes into the lives of her four former friends and her boyfriend and how their actions are connected to her death. The book not only asks the question of who is to blame when bullying reaches the definitive consequence of death but can and should they be punished. 

Together the five friendships and loyalties are pushed to the test as they try to piece together why this happened and whose fault it really was. With everyone pointing fingers, they must look deep inside to uncover the truths about who they are, and what their actions were, to see how far they will go to protect not only themselves, but each other. 

If you are interested in finding out Leslie's story and who really is to blame, read I Swear.
