Josie, the 17-year-old daughter of a French Quarter prostitute, is striving to escape 1950 New Orleans and enroll at prestigious Smith College when she becomes entangled in a murder investigation, in this eagerly anticipated follow-up to "Between Shades of Gray."
From the Publisher:
 It's 1950, and as the French Quarter of New Orleans simmers with secrets, seventeen-year-old Josie Moraine is silently stirring a pot of her own. Known among locals as the daughter of a brothel prostitute, Josie wants more out of life than the Big Easy has to offer. She devises a plan get out, but a mysterious death in the Quarter leaves Josie tangled in an investigation that will challenge her allegiance to her mother, her conscience, and Willie Woodley, the brusque madam on Conti Street.

Josie is caught between the dream of an elite college and a clandestine underworld. New Orleans lures her in her quest for truth, dangling temptation at every turn, and escalating to the ultimate test.

| With characters as captivating as those in her internationally bestselling novel Between Shades of Gray, Ruta Sepetys skillfully creates a rich story of secrets, lies, and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destiny.

Praise

"A cathouse in 1950 New Orleans makes an unsavory setting, so not every parent will find this novel, as good as it is, appropriate for teens younger than 15, but it's partly the degradation surrounding Josie that makes her character so distinct....Atmospheric and assured...[a] nicely paced novel..." - Meghan Cox Gurdon 02/09/2013
