At the beginning of 2013 I read a book an said this is my review “It’s the start of 2013 and I can’t imagine any other book topping my list for the year.” I was right, Out of the Easy was my favorite book of 2013. If you have not read this one yet – run to the store or log into a book site and GET THIS BOOK. You will not be disappointed. I am not the only one that thought this book was AMAZING it is one of the top ten books in YA for the Goodreads Choice Awards. You can read my review here.
It’s 1950, and as the French Quarter of New Orleans simmers with secrets, seventeen-year-old Josie Moraine is silently stirring a pot of her own. Known among locals as the daughter of a brothel prostitute, Josie wants more out of life than the Big Easy has to offer.
She devises a plan get out, but a mysterious death in the Quarter leaves Josie tangled in an investigation that will challenge her allegiance to her mother, her conscience, and Willie Woodley, the brusque madam on Conti Street. Josie is caught between the dream of an elite college and a clandestine underworld. New Orleans lures her in her quest for truth, dangling temptation at every turn, and escalating to the ultimate test.
With characters as captivating as those in her internationally bestselling novel Between Shades of Gray, Ruta Sepetys skillfully creates a rich story of secrets, lies, and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destiny.
