"Out of the Easy" is set against the vivid backdrop of 1950s New Orleans. Written by "New York Times" bestselling author Ruth Sepetys, this novel has something for everyone: love, mystery, murder, blackmail and warmth. Josie Moraine wants out of The Big Easy - she needs more than New Orleans can offer. Known locally as a brothel prostitute's daughter, she dreams of life at an elite college, far away from here. But then a mysterious death in the Quarter leaves Josie caught between her ambition and a clandestine underworld. New Orleans is luring Josie deeper in as she searches for the truth, and temptation beckons at every turn. Praise for "Between Shades of Gray": "This superlative first novel by Ruta Sepetys demonstrates the strength of its unembellished language. A hefty emotional punch". ("The New York Times"). "...moving and heart-wrenching". ("The Guardian"). Ruta Sepetys was born and raised in Michigan and now lives with her family in Tennessee. Her first novel, "Between Shades of Gray", was shortlisted for the 2012 Carnegie Medal and the Waterstones Children's Book Award.
