characters White Ivy 107 A dazzling debut novel about a young woman’s dark obsession with her privileged classmate and the lengths she’ll go to win his loveIvy Lin is a thief and a liar but you’d never know it by looking at her Raised outside of Boston she is taught how to pilfer items from yard sales and second hand shops by her immigrant grandmother Thieving allows Ivy to accumulate the trappings of a suburban teen and most importantly to attract the attention of Gideon Speyer the golden boy. Just what was this cloak called privilege and how did it protect you Was it visible to the wearer or just to onlookers on the outside UPDATE 892020 I had some strong thoughts while reading White Ivy that I planned to include but ultimately cut from my final review Since I finished the book though I ve been turning it over in my head and I think I m going to include those initial thoughts FIRST I was very wary starting this book because of the IvyGideon Asian womanwhite man power dynamic I sensed coming I don t really see enough any rep in books that addresses the problematic idolization of whiteness and specifically relationships with white men that Chinese women sometimes hold I m not saying this applies to everyone but I am saying that this exists Overall I think Ivy was just subversive enough for my red flags not to go up That said I still encourage you take her hero worship of Gideon Speyer with a hefty grain of salt SECOND White Ivy provides reason no 1389012 why I m determined to someday contribute a story about second gen Chinese children who have positive loving affectionate and supportive though still complex and ambivalent relationships with their immigrant parents Because contrary to popular representation the Chinese diaspora does not only consist of crazy rich Asians or the struggling working class who will do anything to assimilate into the American Dream Yes corporal punishment and tiger parenting can be in their own dysfunctional ways a manifestation of complex love These are real important and valid stories but others just as real important and valid also exist There are innumerable families and experiences both within and outside of that binaryspectrum whose stories deserve to be told tooMind you this isn t a critiue of this book Just some things I feel strongly about and that this book has reminded me of What a gorgeous gorgeous novel about women who fight deceive defer and struggle to achieve all that the world denies themI don t think I ve ever read a literary thriller before and definitely nothing like this book It didn t go in ANY of the directions I was expecting and I seriously couldn t stop reading until I was done Susie Yang s writing is compulsively readable in the style of Celeste Ng and Frances Cha taut pacing precise language flawed characters and all and I really really enjoyed it Above all it s permeated with an alienating and visceral sense of otherness Ivy s isolation shame and humiliation as a poor Chinese immigrant in America Here s the thing about White Ivy I could give a rat s ass about Gideon Speyer This is a story about family immigrant families in particular and the complex love we hold for each other She loves you so much she d rather hurt you to make you better even if it means you ll hate her Ivy is the backbone of this story But the flesh and blood is well her flesh and blood and specifically the complicated relationships she has with her mother and grandmother Ivy has always clashed with Nan her mother From the day she joined her parents in America as a child to corporal punishment and screaming matches and a humiliating incident at Gideon s fourteenth birthday the animosity between them lingers even into Ivy s adulthood But she grows to understand that she isn t so different from Nan who is but another woman who wants and will forsake everything love and identity and vanity to achieve itAlsooo Ivy s grandmother Meifeng is pretty badass Some of my favourite parts in the whole book involve Meifeng and Ivy scheming or gossiping or telling family stories one always backing the other up Meifeng s a thief and Ivy s mentor an enterpriser a woman who carried kilos of rice on her back into her fifties to support her daughters It was funny and painful and poignant reading about these women in Ivy s family their stories spanning three generations and two continents And here s the thing about Ivy herself she s TOTALLY an unlikeable narrator Yet you won t be able to stop yourself from feeling for herShe s got a lot lot lot of internalized bullshit going on The book revolves around an idea of perfection what Ivy calls peace that centres whiteness and wealth As a woman of colour fighting for this sort of ideal it s a shitty and painful and degrading experience It means walking on eggshells and setting your opinions aside for those of rich white people It necessitates taking verbal beatings and blatant racism with cheer swallowing their contempt and telling them I liked it All of Ivy s pleasure lay in this gap that elusive divide between familiarity and admiration intimacy and enigma Ivy s story explores the myriad ways that she both suppresses and empowers herself in this process She s enterprising and shrewd and by the end it s clear she isn t going to let her society conditioned fearworship of the Speyers stop her from wringing them for all they re worth Tables have turned and Ivy s never going to be their thumb ever again The primary reason why this book wasn t a five star read for me was that I wish this moment of revolt had come earlier in the storyThe last thing I ll mention is that this book both plays up and defies stereotypes about Chinese American women It s no coincidence that Yang s crafted Liana Finley s character tanned ian tall unconventional looking by Chinese beauty standards wife to a decades older rich white man no coincidence that Gideon s eually wealthy best friend Tom likens Ivy to Wendi Deng Murdoch The contempt they hold for Asian women who ve gained a foothold in their white man s world is palpable and honestly not unlike what the reader presumably feels toward Ivy s enterprising ways and I d like to hope that this makes you uestion what you re feeling because it certainly made me
