Book Review: Out of The Easy by Ruta Sepetys

Image from

A girl from New Orleans, living in the shadow of her mother's ragged reputation, is trying to find a better life for herself but constantly is getting dragged down by her mom. Her mother stopped playing her role as a caring mom when they moved to New Orleans, when she was taken under the business of Willie. Willie knew Josie's mom was just a service to her but saw something more in Josie, who needed to be more than just some meat for men. Josie aspired to get out of this world her mother had made so dark for her and go to college, make something of herself - go somewhere her mother's name wasn't known and make one for herself. With the backing of Willie, her closest friends, and the family she had made for herself, she was going to college. I would recommend this book, especially to those serving their senior year. Right now, we are all thinking about college, all wanting to make a better life for ourselves. This book gives us hope, that if we want something, we need to go out and get it. This book showed that any kid can make it to college, you just have to put yourself out there and go for the things you really want. Josie had no resources, no help from counselors, teachers or her parent. As students, we are lucky to have all the help we need to get ready for college. This book is inspiring to all students and is an amazing read. You would like this book if you like… Between Shades Of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
