Teens > Science Fiction & Fantasy
Hardcover: 352 pages
Publisher: Delacorte Press (July 24, 2018)
Language: English

In this terrifyingly timely tale for fans of The Eye of Minds, a teen and his group of friends find themselves on the run after using a genius lie-detector contraption to expose their corrupt government.

In a Putin-esque near-future America, the gifted and talented high school has just been eliminated, and Sam and his friends have been using their unexpected free time to work on a tiny, undetectable, utterly reliable lie detector. They're all in it for the money--except Theo, their visionary. For Theo, it's about creating a better world. A BS-free world, where no one can lie, and the honest will thrive.

Just 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 accountable.

But he and his friends quickly realize the costs of a BS-free world: the lives of loved ones, and political and economic stability. They now face a difficult question: Is the world capable of operating without lies, or are lies what hold it together?

"Deserving of comparisons to The Hunger Games." --Kirkus

"This compelling, action-packed story will have readers eagerly turning pages...Give to fans of Cory Doctorow's Little Brother." --SLJ

"The action is nonstop from beginning to end..a BS-free way to present a deep and fundamental question." --Booklist
