Ice water mysteriously falls out of nowhere onto anyone who tells a lie. But not if one is intentionally misleading or vague, so it doesn't make you more moral, just careful. Not sure how this relates to the main character coming out to his family, because he was still able to hide is orientation for years despite the difficulty in telling lies.

I read this when it showed up on tor.com and liked it for the cultural stuff and the characters. It's not very SFnal in some ways, though.

There were things I liked about it; I agree that the characters were well written. But I don't think that the parts worked together to support each other. I didn't feel that the lie-detecting rain aspect interacted at all with the coming out story. That makes it a forgettable story for me.

I will always admit that there may be a deeper level that I haven't seen yet.
