Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
Set in 1950s New Orleans, Out of the Easy explores the life of a young woman split between the brothel where she was raised, the bookstore where she tries to move into a respectable life, and the desire to go to a nice college far from home. Ruta Sepetys has an amazing ability to weave amazing stories using groups of people who are not often the focus of historical fiction. The story sucked me right in. The ending is excellent, though I wanted it to go on much longer. I highly recommend this book to people who enjoy historical fiction.
