White Ivy by Susie Yang ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ivy is complicated yet so obviously needy. She is sad and infuriating. Ivy is petty and vengeful and always seeking a better life.

When Ivy is a young child, her parents move to the US leaving her with her Chinese grandmother. Her grandmother is her lifelong for the next couple years until her parents save money and send for her. When the grandmother arrives a couple years later, she again becomes Ivy’s favorite accomplice.

Ivy seems to study life like an outsider. She contemplates what it means to be an American and dies everything she can to fit in. Ivy, like her grandmother, is a petty theft. She can’t afford the American items she admires and instead steals them. The only person that knows the truth about her is Roux Roman. Roux and Ivy develop a complicated friendship based on their truthfulness and attraction.

Ivy thinks she wants the American Dream: a rich prep school boy with a senator father but keeps finding herself drawn to the dark and dangerous Roux.
