12/27/14 review from Saleena

Out of the Easy is a YA Mystery set in 1950s New Orleans.  Josie is the daughter of a prostitute who is trying to make a better life for herself when she suddenly finds herself in the middle of a murder.  I loved the sassy nature of Josie, she is a flawed character who is doing the best she can.  I am not a huge fan of the traditional mystery story, so this took me awhile to read (combing two of my least favorite types of books:  historical and mystery makes me drag my feet a bit)  but I did think Sepetys did a good job and enjoyed the story.
