This book was a lesson to me that just because I loved an author's debut novel, I'm not guaranteed to feel the same about their second. I never connected to Josie. I found her lying and risk-taking annoying. She kept lying to save her mother even though she knew her mother didn't deserve it and the ...

Ruta Sepetys has made a fan out of me! Shades of Gray was a great, if dark read with a strong heroine. This book brings the same strength of character with Josie. The New Orleans setting was what really sold me. I visited a couple of years ago and found the city very captivating- there's so much cha...

Ruta Sepetys does not disappoint. She is a fantastic writer that does a tremendous amount of research to make her novels as accurate as possible.

Out of the Easy landed on my must-buy list because of two reasons: 1. New Orleans, since I'm actually very curious about the area, and it just sounds so fantastic there, 2. unorthodox upbringing of the lead character. All in all, this is a book that's hard to ignore with all its wonderful premises t...

"My mother's a prostitute. Not the filthy, streetwalking kind. She's actually quite pretty, fairly well spoken, and has lovely clothes. But she sleeps with men for money or gifts, and according to the dictionary, that makes her a prostitute."Wow. Never thought I'd enjoy Out of the Easy as much as I ...
