Out Of The Easy by Ruta Sepetys Review


Out Of The Easy by Ruta Sepetys 

Plot Outline 

Josie wants to escape the French Quarter. She is known as the daughter of a prostitute and she wants to escape this. When a mysterious death occurs Josie gets stuck in the Quarter and it seems like the life that she has dreamed of is even further away.

My Opinion 

After loving Salt to the Sea I decided to read Ruta’s other books and whilst this wasn’t quite as good it was still really enjoyable. I found the story to be really engaging and interesting and I thought that the characters were really interesting too. I was pulled into this story and I stayed up late to finish it. This book is set during the 1950s in New Orleans and I found this setting really interesting and unlike anything else that I have ever read. I think that Ruta does a really good job of creating realistic characters that I find interesting and I want to read about them. There were a couple of unexpected moments that took me by surprise. I can’t wait for Ruta to write more books so that I can read more of her writing.
