Sekret, by Lindsay SmithRead about the other entries on the list.
Cold War–era Russia isn’t exactly a dream vacation destination, but Smith’s debut—about psychic teen spies in the KGB—is compelling enough to make the trip worth it. Packed with history and culture, Sekret is, for better and for terrifying, an immersive experience into Soviet time and place that will have you clamoring for the sequel. (For bonus Russia points, pick up the beautiful, Revolution-era Tsarina, by J. Nelle Patrick.)
