Will McIntosh ´ The Future Will Be BS Free reader

S free world where no one can lie and the honest will thriveJust when they finish the prototype and turn down an offer to sell their brainchild to a huge corporation Theo is found dead Greedy companies corrupt privatized police and even the president herself will stop at nothing to steal the Truth App Sam sets his sights on exposing all lies and holding everyone accountableBut he and his friends uickly realize the costs of a BS free world the lives of loved ones and political and economic stability They now face a difficult ues Ahoy there me mateys  I received this young adult sci fi eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review  So here be me honest musings I have loved this author's work ever since I read love minus eighty and have now gobbled up seven of his novelsSide note Get me hands on unbreakable and watchdog and all four novellasWhile I liked this one in parts it was overall just an okay read  As usual the concepts are very cool  The basic premise of this one is there is a group of teens who invent a truth telling machine  But someone wants to stop the technology from getting out there  As for the teens they don't really understand the ramifications of nothing but the truth until it is too lateSo I have to admit that I like being honest  I think lying is usually a waste of time and resources and I try not to do it  But what if for example someone asks if their outfit looks okay and ye think it doesn't  But they think they look hot  So of course ye say that they look awesome because what ye think doesn't matter and ye don't want to hurt feelings  Well with the truth rings that would be impossible  Me friends wouldn't care but an acuaintance?   It could get uglyNow the author raises a lot of difficult issues but doesn't address them in any satisfactory way  Topics touched on eating disorders suicides when someone thinks they be telling the truth but are mistaken voyeurism anxiety cerebral palsy vigilantism greed etc  Most are used as plot points either as exposed secrets or unintended conseuences for the teens to feel bad about  But feeling bad about them was about as far as it went  It didn't really seem to make the characters act any differentlyIn fact pretty much all of the characters are extremely selfish and self centered  In the beginning most of them just wanted money  I could sympathize  But their idealism never really seemed to turn into true realism  Plus unfortunately the plot has some extreme plot holes and the ending was too convenient  So the teens really didn't need to grow or change much based on those circumstancesOne of the good elements is that there were caring parents and teachers  The teens do actually ask the parents for help  That was a nice change for YA  The bad parts were that almost all the adults that were involved were ex military with PTSD or other issuesAlso the romance issues in this book were not to me taste  The main narrator Sam has a crush that is so ridiculous it almost seems cringe worthy  The teens all seem to pair off with each other  The dialogue and tension around the teen lust was angsty and felt like 5th graders then almost 18 year olds  But perhaps I am just too much of a curmudgeon in me old age and can't sympathize with teenage hormones  I was a very abnormal teen in that respect so me experience was not the mainstream oneThis book was a fast read and I did want to know how it ended  I loved the concepts and will be pondering the ramifications for some time to come  This is certainly not me favourite of his but I will continue to read anything he writesSo lastly Thank you Random House Children's Delacorte PressCheck out me other reviews at
