Book Review: Out of the Easy

Hello readers,

The other day I was at the bookstore with my New Orleans, French Quarter sweatshirt.

I remember reading 'The Princess Academy'. There was book that went along with it, 'Palace of Stone'. I got it and read it as I enjoyed my Reece's peanut butter cup cookie. Along with reading a book, I bought a book. I bought 'Out of the Easy'. It's funny how I wore and held a book that both told of New Orleans:

Out of The Easy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love the cover. The girl behind the cage says she is trapped, but is trying to get out.

At first I was weary about reading this because the MC's mom is a prostitute and she lives in a house full of them. All she does is clean for them. I feel sorry for her. Yet as I find out she works in a bookstore and is planning to get out of town I grew to like her. I continue to like her because she goes on to help a mentally ill person. She also has flaws, she is naive and I can relate to that. She hides things in a place where things have been stolen before. She tries to keep quiet about things, but I'm happy when she finally tells about them. I understand her fear of not wanting to be alone. When I was reading I felt like I was her, jumping when she did, etc. Even though there are a few deaths and other losses in this book, there is still love and a happy ending.
