I m reading Out of the Easy exactly a year after reading Between Shades of Gray Sadly the experience was as far and distinct as the setting in the two books I was disappointed to say the least Out of the Easy missed nearly every mark and lacked all the heartbreaking finesse we found in her first novel Not that there isn t an emotional hook the subject matter while not as ambitious as Between Shades of Gray is one that could lift the spirit offer all the grandiose hope we look for in art of all venues Out of the Easy is about Josie She is the daughter of a prostitute she lives in the uarter she works alternately between the bookshop and the brothel and she is smart She is smart and determined and optomistic She dreams of attending college and finally getting out of dirty wicked New Orleans I see a pattern in Sepetys writing young women with a strong will and an inner compass they steer to get them to a better place Inspiring The idea is wonderful and I hope it s a pattern that continues But life is a journey not a destination yes And this book s journey is just simplyflat Reading Out of the Easy gave me the distinct feeling of going through the motions This is a uick read the chapters come and go in a blink of an eye And I felt as if every scene was written and included because it is the formula I think I ve figured out my problem with Sepetys there just isn t enough I felt that way with Between Shades of Gray and I feel it even potently now She doesn t given enough information enough background enough action enoug of anything Josie is a girl who has been made fun of all her life yet we don t really experience this alienation Sure some people turn away from her in a couple of scenes but not enough Josie is supposed to be intelligent a true scholar yet the only factors to explore this is her desire to attend school and her job in the bookshop We see her badly wanting to be admitted but I would ve liked to see her be the scholar be this girl that is being described There is a love triangle sort of and Josie s reactions to both boys seem off and abrupt because again we are not given enough of her relationship with either boy to understand how or why she reacts the way she does And with Josie herself I never really got her She seemed an Everyman reacting to the situations she s put in Like she was a manifestation of all of us within the book and all she did was choose the path that would appease us all She wasn t her own person She didn t have uirks that made her solid and memorable She was bread On a positive note the clouds did occasionally part and I caught glimpses of the writer I loved all those months ago There were sudden slices of sincere heartache ones that finally had me rooting for Josie Slices however and sudden There were also some colourful side characters but then aren t they all Anyway they got me through Some of them Oh and New Orleans I think Sepetys did a fair enough job of transporting readers into this old mythic succulent and sinful place It could ve been effecting but I will say that it was one of my lesser complaintsSo it was disappointment I eventually found myself skimming near the end I m not giving up though because I have this feeling that if Sepetys is inspired enough and really truly driven to tell a story of relevance as I think was the case with Between Shades of Gray not so much with Out of the Easy I think it will be marvelous Maybe next January See you then This review also appears on The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisherNote This review was made possible by Wendy Thank you Darling

    DOWNLOAD [Out of the Easy] Reading Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys lead me to conclude that there aren’t enough YA books set in a the 1950’s and b New Orleans And yet only a writer of Sepetys’ skill and confidence could have successfully written such a story Out of the Easy is a murder mystery first a coming of age story second and about twenty other things in between It is a story of great complexity and yet paradoxically it is also a ve
