Eight top YA novels about world travel

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog, Dahlia Adler tagged eight fantastic, internationally set YA novels, including:
Sekret, by Lindsay Smith

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.)
Read about the other entries on the list.

Writers Read: Lindsay Smith.
