Longlisted for the Center for Fiction's First Novel Prize

"A truly addictive read." -- Glamour

"Susie Yang delves into class warfare and deceit in the season's biggest debut" -- Entertainment Weekly

"Susie Yang's White Ivy cleverly overturns the 'model minority' stereotype with a deliciously twisty story that will leave you breathless." -- Real Simple

"Yang excels at drawing sharp characters, making excruciating observations about class, family, and social norms, and painting the losses of migration and struggles Asians and other immigrants face in America. An easy page-turner... the cutting prose movingly portrays many layers of tribulation and traumas, and marks Yang as a voice to watch." -- Boston Globe

"Yang's dark, spellbinding debut gives insight into the immigrant experience and life in the upper class, challenging the stereotypes and perceptions associated with both. The surprising twists, elegant prose, and complex characters in this coming-of-age story make this a captivating read." -- Booklist (starred review)

"What begins as a story of a young woman's struggles to assimilate quickly becomes a much darker tale of love, lies, and obsession, in which there are no boundaries to finding the fulfillment of one's own dreams. Yang's skill in creating surprising, even shocking plot twists will leave readers breathless." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"In Ivy, Yang has created an ambitious and sharp yet believably flawed heroine who will win over any reader, and the accomplished plot is layered and full of revelations. This is a beguiling and shattering coming-of-age story." -- Publishers Weekly

"The intelligent, yearning, broken, and deeply insecure Ivy will enthrall readers, and Yang's beautifully written novel ably mines the complexities of class and privilege. A sophisticated and darkly glittering gem of a debut." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Electrifying... Part immigrant story, part elitist takedown, part contemporary novel of wicked manners, White Ivy is an unpredictable spectacle... Ivy Lin proves to be the antihero readers will love to hate in debut novelist Susie Yang's assured, deft, biting novel of (manipulative) manners." -- Shelf Awareness

"It's a testament to Susie Yang's skill that she can explore and upend our ideas of class, race, family, and identity while moving us through a plot that twists in such wonderful ways. But none of that would matter nearly as much if not for the truly unforgettable narrator, Ivy, who is so hypnotic, the way her voice feels both wild and controlled. She ran right through me." -- Kevin Wilson, New York Times bestelling author of Nothing to See Here

"White Ivy is dark and delicious. Ivy Lin eviscerates the model minority stereotype with a smile on her lips and a boot on your neck. Cancel your weekend plans, because you won't be able to take your eyes off Ivy Lin." -- Lucy Tan, author of What We Were Promised

"White Ivy is magic and a necessary corrective both to the stereotypes and the pieties that too easily characterize the immigrant experience. Most pleasing of all is the story of Ivy Lin, a daring young woman in search of herself, and not soon to be forgotten." -- Joshua Ferris, prize-winning author of To Rise Again at a Decent Hour

"Elegant and terrifying, steely and sparkling, White Ivy is a propulsive story told with the satisfying simplicity of a classic." -- Rebecca Dinerstein Knight, author of Hex

"Bold, daring, and sexy, White Ivy is the immigrant story we've been dying to hear. Rather than submit to love, Ivy seeks it out, sinks her teeth into it, and doesn't let go. A stunning debut." -- Neel Patel, author of If You See Me, Don't Say Hi
