White Ivy by Susie Yang
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
My last lingering eARC from 2020 and I saved a great read for last. Ivy
struggles to fit in, and this may be her status as the child of
immigrants partially raised by her grandmother in China when she was
very young, who taught her how to steal. But I also think her classmates
are reacting to something else - she's a bit of a sociopath, really.. I
kept being reminded of Tom Ripley...
The reader follows Ivy from
her childhood to a culminating party where she is mortified in front of
her crush, then moves in stages through high school, college, after
college.... Her decisions, reinventions, and sharp turns kept me
I had a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. It came out November 3, 2020, and I'm a bit behind.
