out-of-the-easy

Ruta Sepety’s first novel about a girl’s struggle to survive in Lithuania during turbulent times earned her a passionate young following. That novel’s title — Between Shades of Gray — caused a stir owing to its similarity to that of publishing phenomenon Fifty Shades of Grey (the title is where the similarity ends). Out of the Easy, Sepetys’ second novel, due out in February, takes place in an entirely new setting. From the official description: “Known amongst locals as the daughter of a brothel prostitute, Josie Moraine wants more out of life than The Big Easy has to offer. She devises a plan 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.”
