“I loved Out of the Easy, by Ruta Sepetys. It’s a coming-of-age story set in 1950’s New Orleans. In a nutshell, Josie is the daughter of a prostitute who aspires to attend Smith College. It’s a great story, superbly told. New Orleans is practically a character in this book-it’s so vividly colorful. I couldn’t put it down!”—Kris at KDL’s Comstock Park branch
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.
