Waiting on Wednesday - 107

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at  Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to see what new books will be published.

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

It’s 1950, and as the French Quarter of New Orleans simmers with secrets, seventeen-year-old Josie Moraine is silently stirring a pot of her own. Known among 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 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.

Josie is caught between the dream of an elite college and a clandestine underworld. New Orleans lures her in her quest for truth, dangling temptation at every turn, and escalating to the ultimate test.

With characters as captivating as those in her internationally bestselling novel Between Shades of Gray, Ruta Sepetys skillfully creates a rich story of secrets, lies, and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destiny. (from GoodReads)

Everyone raves about Between Shades of Gray (I haven't read it yet unfortunately) so I'm sure Out of the Easy will be just as good! Plus, New Orleans is such a great setting. Out of the Easy will be released February 13, 2013.

We agree completely -- we haven't read BETWEEN SHADES OF GREY but want to, and love the NOLA setting!

This sounds like such an incredible read! I have Between Shades of Grey sat on my shelf waiting to be read, and I've heard nothing but awesome things about it, so that makes me more excited to read this one! Great pick.
