Out of the Easy
By Ruta Sepetys
Scheduled Release: February 13, 2013
I LOVED Between Shades of Gray.
So when I heard about Ruta Sepetys' new book, I was super excited.
Here's the description from 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.
Mysterious death, prostitutes, New Orleans -- how can this book not be interesting?! I'm looking forward to it.
On a separate note...
Happy 4th of July!
