Written behind bars, The Honest Lie was first read by #227742's fellow inmates. They have shared how the book impacted their lives while serving time inside prison and how it continued to bring value to their lives on the outside. Not only will this book continue to change the lives of those on the inside, it will change the lives of others all over the world when it is released to the outside world. This book, in every sense, impacts people from the inside- out.
FROM THE INSIDE
Phil first met #227742 at the Utah State Prison. The two became close friends and he was one of the first to receive a typed copy of The Honest Lie. That first drafted copy is one of the few things he brought with him when he was released.
#227742 and Jamis became well acquainted while serving time at the Utah State Prison together. Since being released, Jamis and other members of his family have been a great support to Shane.
Garrett is currently incarcerated at the Utah State Prison. He now also has a copy of the book and has been so positively impacted by #227742 and the book, he sent a letter in the mail without being asked. Later he told Shane, "I know if it can help a guy in here like me, it can help anybody out there."
