Out Of The Easy by Ruta Sepetys
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.
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.
