White Ivy by Susie Yang Book Summary

“A truly addictive read” (Glamour) about how a young woman’s crush on a privileged former classmate becomes a story of love, lies, and dark obsession, offering stark insights into the immigrant experience, as it hurtles to its electrifying ending in this “twisty, unputdownable, psychological thriller” (People).

Ivy Lin is a thief and a liar—but you’d never know it by looking at her.

Raised outside of Boston, Ivy’s immigrant grandmother relies on Ivy’s mild appearance for cover as she teaches her granddaughter how to pilfer items from yard sales and second-hand shops. Thieving allows Ivy to accumulate the trappings of a suburban teen—and, most importantly, to attract the attention of Gideon Speyer, the golden boy of a wealthy political family. But when Ivy’s mother discovers her trespasses, punishment is swift and Ivy is sent to China, and her dream instantly evaporates.

Years later, Ivy has grown into a poised yet restless young woman, haunted by her conflicting feelings about her upbringing and her family. Back in Boston, when Ivy bumps into Sylvia Speyer, Gideon’s sister, a reconnection with Gideon seems not only inevitable—it feels like fate.

Slowly, Ivy sinks her claws into Gideon and the entire Speyer clan by attending fancy dinners, and weekend getaways to the cape. But just as Ivy is about to have everything she’s ever wanted, a ghost from her past resurfaces, threatening the nearly perfect life she’s worked so hard to build.

Filled with surprising twists and a nuanced exploration of class and race, White Ivy is a “highly entertaining,” (The Washington Post) “propulsive debut” (San Francisco Chronicle) that offers a glimpse into the dark side of a woman who yearns for success at any cost.

It had me and never left go.. I loved this book.Surprise after surprise.

Wonderful. Wonderful read. I couldn’t put it down. Characters so real and so interesting

White Ivy. Loved this book - well written page turner! Recommended to all my friends

A mesmerizing quick read. This book was great with its twists. I was mainly interested at the look the author takes with class differences. The end was a bit silly but not unbelievable. I enjoyed the authors writing style.

Best Book Ever. An absolutely stunning profound unexpected gem of a book. I couldn’t put it down. So much to unpack. Is this Susie Yangs first book?? Please let there be a sequel!

Good, but not a page turner. I found it interesting but not nearly as thrilling or having the depth the description depicted.

Weak ending. Hated the ending. I feel bad I invested so much into these characters Easy read though

Five star. This book was so unpredictable and well written! I stayed up all night reading it until I finished. I loved it

White Ivy. Depressing and demoralizing. I almost hated it.

It was good. While I couldn’t get into the beginning of the book. The ending was interesting to say the least. The writing was amazing. The story just kinda, ok

Asian white worship in the flesh. Read it. As a black American married to a Chinese woman in Shanghai I couldn’t relate. This is a book about class and race. The Chinese (Americanized or otherwise) obsession and envy of white people/skin is readily apparent in the novel. I put it down halfway through. I’m willing to bet the author is married to the very same type of person the main character obsesses over in the novel. Goes down the same path as the Joy Luck Club, Iron and Silk, to all the boys I’ve ever lived etc. The endless fascination of idolizing white men and society. Of course there is nothing wrong with it. However it doesn’t provide the excitement of something different. We are left feeling we’ve all been on this ride before. I was hoping Gideon would be any other ethnicity than white. Of course I was disappointed. We want new stories. Show us that you can think outside of the box.

White ivy.... Great read couldn’t put it down....

Hard main character to like but a very good read. This book was unbelievable. The main character is so deplorable yet you cannot stop reading because it’s so well written. The author crafted her with such depth and detail that you feel Ivy is a real person, someone you know. But she is so cold and calculating that by the end, I just wanted her to get her just deserts.
