Waiting on Wednesday: Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Out of the Easy
By Ruta Sepetys
Philomel Books
February 13th, 2013
Young Adult

Synopsis via Goodreads

Known amongst 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 to 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. Caught between the dream of an elite college and a clandestine underworld, New Orleans lures Josie in her quest for truth, dangling temptation at every turn, and escalating to the ultimate test.

With characters as captivating as her international 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.


So I still need to read Between Shades of Gray, which I have heard is amazing and own. And Out of the Easy sounds fabulous as well. As a matter of fact, there was a drop for it at BEA and I just barely missed it. I was so disappointed. So now I'll be waiting until 2013. O_o Love the cover of this one as well. So rich and colorful. What do you think? Is this a book you'll be waiting for?

You definitely need to read Between Shades of Gray-so good and covering a really neglected area of historical fiction. Since I loved that book, I definitely want to read this one!

I didn't love BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY as much as other reviewers did, but I think the author's new book sounds really excellent. I'll definitely be picking it up!

BSoG was such an amazing story, so I'm sure OotE is going to be just as great. Fabulous pick! :)
