Waiting On Wednesday: Sekret by Lindsay Smith

Author: Lindsay Smith
Publisher: Roaring Brooke Press/Macmillan Children's
Expected Publication: April 15, 2014


From debut author Lindsay Smith comes an espionage thriller
with a dash of both history and dystopia.
Yulia’s father always taught her that an empty mind is a safe mind. She has to hide her thoughts and control her emotions to survive in Communist Russia, especially because she seems to be able to read the minds of the people she touches. When she’s captured by the KGB and forced to work as a psychic spy with a mission to undermine the U.S. space program, she’s thrust into a world of suspicion, deceit, and horrifying power where she can trust no one.

She certainly can’t trust Rostov, the cruel KGB operative running the psychic program. Or handsome Sergei who encourages her to cooperate with the KGB. Or brooding Valentin who tells her to rebel against them. And not the CIA, who have a psychic so powerful he can erase a person’s mind with his own thoughts. Yulia quickly learns she must rely on her own wits and power to survive in this world where no SEKRET can stay hidden for long.
My Thoughts: Espionage thriller, KGB, psychic's and covert ops, sign me up! This novel sounds like it is going to be an action packed thriller and I can not wait to get my hands on it. In Soviet Russia you do not read book, book reads you!
