This is a well written psychological thriller that takes us through Ivy's--a Chinese-American woman--slow descent into madness after years of trying to mold herself to fit into what she believes to be The American Dream. This book subtly discusses the struggles and limitations Asian-Americans often face in this country, as well as socio-economic divides within Chinese culture itself. In light of recent events, this book may bring some more understanding to those anti-AAPI racism.
