Waiting on Wednesday: Skandal (Sekret #2) by Lindsay Smith

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that features upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication 'can't-wait-to-read' selection is:


Title: Skandal (Sekret #2)
Author: Lindsay Smith
Release Date: April 2015
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan Children's
Find on: Goodreads

The dramatic sequel to Sekret, this psychic Cold War espionage thriller follows Yulia to Washington, DC, where she fights to discover the truth about her family without losing control of her mind.

My mind is mine alone.

Life in Washington, D.C., is not the safe haven Yulia hoped for when she risked everything to flee communist Russia. Her father is reckless and aloof, and Valentin is distant and haunted by his past. Her mother is being targeted by the CIA and the US government is suspicious of Yulia's allegiance. And when super-psychics start turning up in the US capitol, it seems that even Rostov is still a threat. Ultimately, Yulia must keep control of her own mind to save the people she loves and avoid an international Skandal.

My first thoughts when I saw the cover: OMG THAT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I'VE EVER SEEN.

Yes that cover is amazing. I have read Sekret and honestly I thought the author was very talented and brave to have chosen to write historical fiction because it really is very hard to expand since there are so many facts and rules to follow.

But she did it, and she is an amazing author. So needless to say, I can't wait to see what magic Lindsay Smith is going to wield in Skandal!
