4.7/5 STARS - GRADE=A (Upgraded to 5/5)
Out of the Easy is my 555th read on Goodreads, so in honor of that, I upped my 4.7-star rating to a full 5 stars…because my 555th read needs a 5-star rating.
Ruta Sepetys writes such vivid, compelling characters that just reel you in. Josie is no exception, nor are any of the other characters, even the skeevy ones. Along with Lauren Fortgang's narration, the time period and the atmosphere is captured perfectly in Out of the Easy.
